    Helper tools for the AUR.

    I agree with auditing the PKGBUILDs yourself, though I do prefer using an AUR helper, simply for the convenience. With that said, I'm going to stay with the helper that I currently use because it shows the PKGBUILDs by default. The GitHub for it is here: aurutils, and the AUR page is aurutils aur.
