You can already do both queries without this patch:

repoquery --archlist=src --requires <pkg>
or repoquery --requires <pkg>.src

And --whatbuildrequires:
repoquery --archlist=src --whatrequires <dep>
or repoquery --whatrequires <dep> '*.src'

I don't mind adding aliases for --buildrequires and --whatbuildrequires 
but you could just reuse/enhance the existing logic for enabling src 
archlist as needed for these operations instead of reinventing it :) Also 
I think fmt_buildrequires() could be just: return self.fmt_requires() 
instead of duplicating the functionality (unless I missed something...)
