Packages which are in repos but still in AUR are not downloaded #29

If a package is in a repository but still in the AUR cower refuses to download it.

For packages in official repositories this should not be a problem, since their PKGBUILDs should be in the ABS and not in the AUR. However packages from inofficial repositories usually have their PKGBUILDs in the AUR.

An example:

$ grep -A3 adslgr32 /etc/pacman.conf
[adslgr32]
## The Hellenic (Greek) archlinux unofficial repository with many
## interesting packages.
Server = http://archlinuxgr.tiven.org/archlinux/$arch
$ cower -d cower
warning: cower is available in adslgr32
$ pacman -Slq adslgr32 | grep cower
cower-git
$ pacman -Si cower-git

Description    : A simple AUR agent with a pretentious name

While it is correct for cower-git to provide cower, in this case cower itself should probably be in the repository as it has a stable release. However the general problem with PKGBUILDs of packages from unofficial repositories remains.

I added the --ignorerepo flag to cower for just this reason.
