Update needed for Pacman/Restore local database page?

So, I was following instructions to restore my corrupt local Pacman database on - https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … l_database

I noticed this line in the inlined pacrecover script, which defaults to packages using the *.tar.gz format.

...
pkgname="${parampart[0]}-${parampart[1]}-*.pkg.tar.xz"
...

Now that arch has moved to the zstd compression scheme for packages, shouldn't the script be updated to check for both?

I'm not well versed nor confident enough with Pacman to edit the page with the necessary changes and am posting this question here in the hope that someone more knowledgeable can help.
