Seems very interesting!
I attempted to decode the build process, but it is very complex and
wrapped up in node.js scripts that download extra pieces.
Sadly this meant I couldn't really figure out how to compile it
myself; and hence can't create a proper package :(
Lacking that, I created a very simple binary AUR package.
