Thanks for the news, and the example API use. 

I've implemented the binding, and it is now available in archlinux 0.3


An example of how to use it:

    import Distribution.ArchLinux.AUR
    import Control.Monad

    me = "arch-haskell"

    main = do
        packages <- maintainer me
        forM_ packages $ putStrLn . packageName

To print all packages by "me"

In AUR now. http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=29267
