diabonas [1] filed a request to merge darkmod [2] into thedarkmod-bin

This package installs precompiled binaries, therefore it must be named
with a "-bin" suffix according to the guidelines. Upstream also seems
to prefer the name "The Dark Mod" including the definite article,
hence including "the" in the name like other distributions do (see
https://repology.org/project/thedarkmod/versions) appears to make

Note that the current "darkmod" package has several packaging issues
that the current maintainer acknowledges, but professes himself unable
to fix, see the comments. Therefore I had to rewrite the new PKGBUILD
from scratch.
