I think its really only the cleanup script that is directly affected.
db-update doesn't need to know about old packages, db-move and db-remove
only work on db files and use mv which should also work with symlinks.

I think it's definetly worth to modify the cleanup script to handle both
layouts...a complete resync will produce a lot of unnessecary traffic.

The issue left is the community repo.
