Actually SMED was also invented as a quality control mechanism.

The idea is that when changing things is fast, it encourages people to 
correct mistakes as they are discovered.

The process that "aur" defines is populated with mistake proofed 
mechanisms (aka poka joke <https://www.google.com/search?q=poka+joke>). 
Since most error detection is standardized in code, not on manual 
operation, it cannot be overlooked.

Plus "aur pack" eases testing the package before uploading. Then any 
mistake will be exposed.

Provide a sample where that happens, and I will consider a solution.

Any feedback which real intention is to help improving is welcome.
