Automated linting tools are difficult by design. :) The general idea is
to raise warning flags that tell you to investigate yourself.
That being said, we do try, so if there is somewhere you think namcap
could do a better job warning you, feel free to discuss this on the
[arch-projects] mailing list (which is where namcap development takes

pkglint is a *partial* attempt to reimplement namcap in bash as a
libmakepkg extension
