in such case it wouldn't be "broken" but as far I remember the AUR
helpers cannot find the right dependencies based on provides .
Therefore the package openfoam wouldn't be BROKEN but during the install
phase it **should** claim about some unsolved dependencies and will
refuse to build.

Maybe I missed (and I cannot find in the archives) the aur-general
discussion where the maintainers would abandon their packages in favour
of yours, agreeing to the merge, so please send us a link where I can
see the whole discussion.
