The main thing I need to do to finish the package splitting work (apart 
from documentation...) is to fix the repackaging. 

So this is what I intend to do:

1) Old style PKGBUILD [no package() function or splitpkg]:  Behaviour 
2) With package() function or split packages: The package() function or 
package_*() functions are run.

With split packages, the package_*() functions have to be run as that is 
where all the pkgname, pkgdesc, etc are overridden.  I think it makes 
sense to do so with the package() function too.  And I could see that 
being a lot more helpful as I could fix a broken install line etc while
