1) This relays untrue information to the person reading the pkgver.
2) This requires rewriting the whole PKGBUILD to use secondary proxy
variables everywhere that $pkgver is currently being used, like most
paths and the source array.
3) It made me throw up when I read that.
4) https://www.parabola.nu/ has forked the pacman package to add pkgrel
distro-specific support for 2.1.parabola1 style pkg *rel*, because
they consider this sort of sharp deviation from upstream makepkg to
be superior to messing with the pkgver.
