I've used the code from your vcs branch for a bit and it worked quite
well for me with git sources. It is also incredibly useful compared to
the old implementation.

One weird bug: I used a pkgver function like this:

pkgver() {
  local myver


This failed on the 'myver' variable name, although it is local.
