First of all I'd like to thank everyone for making me feel welcome :)

Andy: I believe competition can be a good thing, since it motivates
people to do better. I thank your offer of assistance, and I'll drop
you a line if questions arise. I also like coding in Java very much,
but wanted to learn Python :)

Dusty: I have tried libpypac but I seem to be able to sync only
'[current]' and not '[extra]' and '[community]'. And I'm also
considering using pacman to install/upgrade/query packages. So I guess
this is what I'll do.
A mind all logic is like a knife all blade.
It makes the hand bleed that uses it.
