Arch strives to deliver unpatched software. Packaging something like
ungoogled-chromium is antithetical to this goal, and I struggle to see why we
should make an exception for this package.

(This is also from someone that looks at ungoogled-chromium as only a
performative thing, it doesn't actually get you anything in terms of security
nor privacy. Obviously someones opinion might differ :p)

The current situation is clearly not ideal, and I don't see any good solutions.
I'd maybe see if we can make an exception for ungoogled-chromium-bin as the
pragmatic option, thus allowing it to repackage .pkg.tar.zst.
