i like the feature you provide in this patch, just i don't care about
pacman-2.x anymore. i primarily develop pacman for Frugalware and of
course i use this list to send the changes back to "upstream" (Judd).
(and we use pacman-3.x in Frugalware for more than a year)

anyway, basically it looks ok to me, but Judd is your man, really
(Aurelien is not available for months)
