The easiest solution is to make vdr-api a virtual package, like 
However, i'm 99% sure "real" virtual packages can only be created in 
official repos.

For AUR you'll have to do with a dummy package .

I think you should make vdr a split package with pkgbase= vdr and 2 
package functions :
package_vdr() and package_vdr-api() .

vdr should depend on vdr-api .
