To be clear, this is for installing packages with "makepkg -i", not the
automatic dependency installation done in makepkg.

That said, this idea was rejected previously
(https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/28237), but given there is a duplicate
request (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/28673) and now a further patch,
I might reconsider...
