Well, yes. The AUR package autoupdates itself automatically with every
build. The [extra] package is manually updated for the latest commit.
So they mostly do have the same version except for the short time when
one package is updated and one is not.

So I could just create a lib32-libx264 and update the commit when
[extra] updates (late update)
and lib32-libx264-stable-git is updated automatically,
but possibly earlier than libx264 in [extra] (early update).

I can create lib32-libx264 as a clone of lib32-libx264-stable-git and
switch to a specific commit.
Unless Nikos/Gordon wants to do that.
