Very cool, I didn't know about pyalpm, but now that I do I'll have a
look at it some day. I was working on something similar for Lua, but
never got anywhere.

Seems you haven't made a PKGBUILD for it, would make it easier to
install... *hint* ;)

You should check out llvm and llvm-based compilers, like clang
(C/C++/Obj-C)... I did an attempt but their build process is a bit
odd, and clang hasn't been "released" yet, just lives in svn.

Had a quick look at some of your packages, they look fine (other than
some small things that Stefan pointed out).
