[aur-general] Packages that include other project code

I'd like a sanity check!

Waybar has a dependency on a C++ logging library called spdlog. This 
project depends on fmt and by default uses an included copy. I've raised 
a ticket about removing this but it doesn't look like the developer is 
interested [2].

In this case, I feel it expedient to patch out the logic to use the 
bundled headers [2] and outright remove the directories [3]. Am I 
correct in this conclusion or is this too far-reaching?
