I use --skipinteg when i build several version of the same package.
With the new package signing, it can also be  useful to be able to
"quickly" escape signature verif.

Maybe i bad see the policy of short option in pacman, but almost all
options should have a long and short form. Letting user choose with
version he likes.
Here i think it's a usefull option.

I think everything which can fail build process, so --skipinteg.
