Well, in Gentoo we normally resort to using sed to fix these kinds of
things.  If we can do it, I'm sure the Arch package managers are able to
do so.

It might be more annoying, but IMHO it's a bigger problem when a
developer is too lax in constraints (since then we've got to tweak the
constraints until we find ones that _do_ work).
