i think only luke would know first hand - he explained the
rationale; but its not clear what particular use case it was
intended to support, or some bug it was intended to fix

  "- We mount the temporary directory containing the extracted
source package files read-only, to be sure that makepkg doesn't
modify the PKGBUILD. This is necessary because --holdver only
disables pkgver() if it's a VCS package."
