I'm -1 for this reason. If you don't like typing --skipinteg (or hell,
getting tab completion of `makepkg -sk<tab>`, you're being really
lazy. I also see the -G option being spoon fed to users on IRC or the
wiki without them realizing what it does; at least in the current
situation the flag is slightly self-explanatory.

You do realize you can do `makepkg -g >> PKGBUILD` over and over
again, and having them defined multiple times in the PKGBUILD doesn't
hurt anything during testing, right? Nor do you need to move them from
the bottom for them to work...
