Hate to stomp on good ideas, but can you port this patch to the
current GIT version of makepkg? I really like it because it doesn't
seem to do too much, but makepkg has changed a lot since pacman 3.0.0.

If you need any help with git, try to catch me on IRC or send me a
private email.

One thought- usage instructions would be nice to be in the patch too
(the stuff from makepkg --help).
