That sounds reasonable in theory, but in practice it does nothing. The 
software does its work nicely, and there's no official alternative that 
does such thing. Plus being in the AUR implicitly suggests it's unofficial.

So it doesn't matter 
<https://signalvnoise.com/archives2/it_just_doesnt_matter.php>, it's 
just for the political correctness. I could name it "aup", but really, 
what's the deal? I simply thought that typing "aur get" would be more 
meaningful to the end user, but whatever.

Another alternative is that you name what criteria such program shall 
meet to be considered official. And see if we can get to a common ground.
