Is opposition to AUR helpers really so hard to believe? A few years ago, 
there were a lot of people posting comments about "the build system 
being broken" when they were actually experiencing bugs in yaourt.

More on topic: if this gets implemented, I will again ask for typeahead 
suggestions to be removed as they would not be very good at predicting 
all the regex searches that can be tried.
