I know, I was trying to think like an user simply looking at a PKGBUILD.
I always see the build() function, now I know I can add an optional
package() one which will be run under fakeroot so that build() can be
run as an user. I might not care or think about the rest.

Anyway, it is not a big deal. Your original documentation is still
clear and simple enough, and it is more complete, so you can keep it
as is if you prefer :)
