Yeah, that's what the 1st response in the bug report basically said: pacman DB
location is a cosmetic detail.

Also, note that systemd features like factory reset and/or atomic updates make
no sense in the context of a rolling-release distro like Arch (or any
distribution for that matter), so I doubt that they can be a sufficient
motivation for this DB move...
