As far as the testsuite is concerned, you can just use "Fix overloading
PKGEXT to mean two things." as a base. This means that all you need to
do is check that if you releasePackage the same package twice using a
new $PKGEXT it is still rejected.


We're not testing whether or not globs work, we're testing whether or
not check_pkgrepos properly detects pre-existing packages (which it does
via globs). Using __isGlobfile() here will no longer be useful
information once $PKGEXT is only ever something from makepkg. So it
doesn't make sense to add code that will be almost immediately removed.
