I'm reading here but don't have much time for playing with it these
days. Tell me when the true testing begins so I can switch over using
it for daily pkg building.

Two small questions: 

1) Do you recommend or is it required to mark the arch with "" around
as Jan is adding it always - arch=("i686") or simply arch=(i686)?

2) Will we get an option to makepkg.conf to set the desired compression
gz/bz2 (+ compression level?). I still think it would make sense to use
bzip though it eats more cpu time.
