hm. should pacman be distro-independent? in that case i would propose
the following:

1) revert the changes like:

-       Object holding data from a pacman package.
+       Object holding data from an ArchLinux package.


-               """Creates a pacman package archive.
+               """Creates an ArchLinux package archive.

and so on

2) i would review our tree in case it contains such Frugalware-specific

hm? every functional change is submitted here afaik

could you say an example?

(i assume an s/pkg.tar.gz/fpm/ is not a functional change)
