35. to be honest the problem is that this is an api change and we use
already alpm in many places. an unnecessary recompile of all the
packages should be avoided if possible. yes, i know that the answer now
will be "we always said pacman3 is not yet ready, we said don't use it
yet - now see, why can't you guys wait?" :)

my first opensource project where i started hacking was MPlayer and
there any patch that contained whitespace changes was rejected with a
short "whitespace changes mixed with functional changes, rejected"
message, so i'm used to do things this way. i'll try to stop blaming you
because of your cosmetics ;)
