That's not a bad idea, and it's one that's been recommended to me for
pkgfile as well. Is there a simple (read: bash-usable) interface I
could work with to speed up pkgfile? I think it would be smart for us
to coordinate on this, and in fact I'd like to add pkgconflict into my
pkgtools package. Are you currently using git for it? pkgtools is
hosted on github[1] right now, though that might be a little ajax-y
for you to navigate easily. If so, try using the "github" command line
utility[2]. I'll be on IRC if you want to discuss the options with
this, or jabber would be fine as well.
