I've already implemented sporadic parts of it, but it is only a first 
try, and I'm not ready to commit or share it until I'm sure it is 
possible to get it working right.

It is not really a simple task, and eventually, the transaction 
structure need to be extended to support sync operations: sync_commit() 
must be able to deal with both a list of packages to remove and to 
install in the same operation.

To sum-up, there's nothing frozen for now, so I'm still interested to 
hear ideas or suggestions on this topic, or to get some patches too!
