I don't care what some AUR helper does. Most of them are broken, and 
none of them are pacman so pacman does not care.

The only non-broken AUR helper I know of currently, is aurutils. 
Coincidentally, aurutils doesn't accept -S with or without arguments -- 
it does not wrap pacman at all.

Erm, what. This is nonsense.

I don't know where you submitted some pull request, because the pacman 
project is not on github. It's possible third-party entities have 
uploaded a copy of the pacman source code to github, but that's really 
quite meaningless since they -- per definition -- could not merge it and 
expect that to affect the pacman project itself.

Anyway, if you did submit it to the right place in accordance with 
then I don't see it getting accepted. I for one am against it.
