Yes, it does seem like a good solution. I just need to test Dan's fix  
to the spaces problem. As I mentioned on the bug tracker I was unable  
to get makepkg to look for filenames with spaces when using something  
like source=('foo bar'), it instead looks for 'foo' and 'bar'. I have  
no idea why it does this, so I'll look into it, but I have two exams  
this week and then I'll be in the US for a week, so I don't really  
have time to play with it.
