I would think the rules on this would say it's still a duplicate. If
there's problems they should be fixed, not have a new package pop up.
Your PKGBUILD does a lot of hacky stuff that I don't know how to feel
about it. using curl for global variables. Forcing an insanely high
pkgver so that it always wants to update.
It's not up to me though. I brought this up briefly in the linked
thread and Eli seemed to agree so I thought I would send this request
and see what happens.
