Why not display a warning?

Automagically modifying things is very unlike what pacman tools do, but
vcs naming conventions are something I'd like to see encouraged.

Since I'm currently out of aur helpers, I search for packages manually by name
and missing packages because they don't stick to the convention is something
I'd like to avoid. So, while we're at it, what other approaches on this can you
suggest? Downloading pkgbuilds and checking the way mathew's code does now?
