License issues do need to be handled somewhere. I think we've
already chosen to handle them in pacman, by putting all that
information into packages.
We could separate this out into a separate binary that uses libalpm
and acts as a wrapper around real pacman, I suppose, if that would
make people feel better. That seems to me like even more complexity
for a fairly lightweight feature.
