OK, for testing purposes I've checked out the dbscripts HEAD in
/arch-new on gerolde. This has potential support for 'any' packages
AND split packages

Please test them and let me know if there are any errors (I can fix
them, or you can send me a patch)

I've created testing/os/any on gerolde (the others may error out
because of the missing dir).

This should use symlinks so no one needs to update pacman.conf, correct?
