I understand your cause for concern, so I'd like to know if there is
any reasonable way to confirm my identity?

As mentioned by somebody else in this thread, a lot has changed since
2010, including PGP package signing in pacman. Every TU now has a
fingerprint that can eliminate doubt in situations like these, but I
wasn't quite around long enough for its universal adoption. My AUR
account was seemingly disabled due to inactivity (?), and I'd be hard-
pressed to keep a domain name for 8 years.
