Neat program!

It currently doesn't handle release candidate version tags. For example,

$ aur-out-of-date -pkg influxdb
[OUT-OF-DATE] [influxdb] Package influxdb should be updated from 1.4.3-1 to

It might be worth adding an option to ignore version tags that end in
'rc*'. Or perhaps make that the default and add a flag to *not* ignore
release candidate tags. I'm sure there are other conventions for post-fixes
on version tags that indicate pre release or testing status. Maybe a more
flexible way to go would be to offer an environment variable or option for
setting a list of regexes to disregard if matched.
