It should have an option to scan $PATH/*/os/$ARCH/*.pkg.tar.gz so we can 
scan an existing ftp mirror all at once. Also, using "ls" in unnecessary 
as far as I can see, so it would look like:

for pkg in $directory/*.pkg.tar.gz; do
for pkg in $directory/*/os/$ARCH/*.pkg.tar.gz; do

I keep a mirror of all arch packages on my laptop, so we wouldn't have 
to run it on the server.
