[arch-general] A repo-add replacement?

I've noticied that repo-add will blindly overwrite the entry of an
already added package with whatever you point it to.  Even if the
existing entry is for a version that is newer.  It basically means
that "repo-add repo.db.tar.gz *.pkg.tar.xz" doesn't work that well :-(

Is there some other tool for building a a repo db that doesn't follow
my instructions so blindly? ;-)
