It has nothing to do with being unable to. aurweb would be fully able
to. It's that that's not how provides work. This behaviour is exactly
like if you eg try doing a `pacman -Si` on the provide. Provides just
provide another name for conflict resolution, and depending on a provide
will likely never link to the package page of some random PKGBUILD that
provides it because many things could provide the same thing and it's
not a real package name.
