Not the sysroot, rootdir. I don't see how that would be overly complex, we do it in other places already.
Isn't --root deprecated in favor of --sysroot though? (according to the manpage at least).
Sort of. The current --root option is a confusing mess that nobody actually understands, so it will go away at some point. The underlying libalpm rootdir setting isn't going anywhere though, and, in the future, will be configured with a new --rootdir option.
