arbitrarily "bumping" VCS packages doesn't gain anything other then
creating fuzz and satisfy shitty AUR wrappers -- it should be avoided at
all means. With VCS packages there is noting like "out of date" in the
classical term and such PKGBUILD should only be altered when there is
actual change (f.e. in the dependencies or the build process).

You either need to remember, or look for something like a --devel switch
in your AUR wrapper.
