Applied what you have. As well as Jürgen's change.

No idea... I left that in there

Yes, because msg/msg2 don't accept/use the -n option
I like the idea of removing _package specific_ options from command
line params. If you can change it in the PKGBUILD file, it doesn't
really need a command line option - so good call.
I also agree with the removal of command line srcdest/pkgdest... the
usage of it doesn't make sense to me... I don't know when someone
would want one specific package in an odd place.
Anyway, I applied this by hand as I don't have sophisticated patching
stuff at work (haven't installed cygwin yet) and it lets me see what
you are doing in alot of it. So, if I did break something by doing
this, let me know.
