Mind naming that source? This concerns the directories that have
nothing to do with the package or pkgname itself, so I'm also not sure
how that applies here.

Also, Arch might have a standard of not naming packages with spaces,
but pacman itself has no problem with spaces in pkgnames, and I intend
to continue supporting that.
