That wasn't initially clear from what you said. :) I will stick with
making sure the PKGBUILD is well-written then, and if I feel in the
mood, commit the changes makepkg itself makes to the PKGBUILD. ;)

(No real gain != loss)

And I don't really see it as a "workaround for AUR wrappers". I see it
as getting more useful information into the AUR rpc interface.

It's similar to why I make sure to bump the pkgrel to trigger a rebuild
for soname bumps -- and there are people who insist that AUR users
should be required to check for that by hand.
