This contained a large amount of gunk in $startdir which it used to
clone things not in source=() and do weird things to them; not only
isn't it a proper PKGBUILD, the AUR isn't a hosting platform except for
PKGBUILDs. If people wish to write complex programs to use in packaging
something (complete with 9k lines worth of package-lock.json), those
programs need to be tracked in an external repository and cloned in

As such, I've done more than delete it. I've redacted its entire history
so it no longer takes up space in the AUR content storage, where it
didn't belong.
