I'm more concerned that it bundles source code in a tarball in the AUR,
and neither of the files in that tarball correspond to the Github repo
referenced as upstream.

It also seems to have no explanation for what it does, and the uploader
registered an account just in time to upload this, so I've got no clue
what their deal is.

This is definitely an interesting claim though, and I'd like to see
references for what this is referring to. :)
