[arch-dev-public] [PATCH 0/4] create-filelists patchset

This is a series of patches to make create-filelists a lot more efficient at
what it does, and also make the files database a lot more useful. The end-user
result is that the files database also includes the 'desc' and 'depends'
entries found in a normal .db.tar.gz database.

As far as other changes, the package loop rework patch is the most important
one. Rather than inefficiently unzip every package to get the .PKGINFO file and
determine its name and version, we use the .db.tar.gz directly which saves us a
ton of work in most cases.

Comments welcome, I'm not sure who is the head honcho that will pull these in,
but it does help setup re-adding file support in archweb in addition to making
this cron job suck a bit less. We might even think about running it more often
than once a day now.
