Well, to people hacking on the source anyway.

The whole idea of libmakepkg was that you can drop in new *.sh files
into the libmakepkg directory (because it is a "library") rather than
editing all that tightly-woven logic in /usr/bin/makepkg

Have you actually looked at what, for example,
/usr/share/makepkg/tidy.sh does to allow extendable tidy options?

How many different ways can I say "add code to automatically source
certain types of files, and expect those files to append items to an
array" without actually writing the code on your behalf?

Use a client that doesn't suck, then.
