Yeah, I was gonna say the same thing - the makepkg changes are real
minor script changes (i.e. changing "-R" to "-Rs"), whereas the total
download FR is more... I don't want to say difficult, but longer, and
slightly more error prone.

It's doable, but I think it might add too much development time right now.
