Default Help adding support for BZR, CVZ, DARCS to makepkg

Forwarding to aur-general, as there's likely a larger corpus of people
who could potentially be affected by this...

Allan's a bit overly dramatic about this -- the current (old) PKGBUILDs
will continue to mostly work, but I would expect that they'll break in
quiet and interesting ways (e.g. pkgver won't be updated).

Am I understanding this correctly when I read that makepkg is going to have sort of native support for VCS?
