Restraining myself from returning the flames, did you happen to read
this email thread before replying?

1) I am the submitter.
2) Ok, I'm two days short of two weeks from marking it out of date.
3) I was working WITH goll, but haven't been able to get him to update
the package with any further updates.

I figure either:
a) I can take it back and update it - and maintain it long term; or
b) people can flame me and I'll just build it locally for the future -
and ignore it on AUR.

I'd much rather do option A.
