Sorry for the "style" of my previous e-mail.

The solution: Let foo is the updateable package (we update it with
foo2), its requiredby packages: r_1, r_2, r_3 ... . We need to provide:
"if r_i depends on foo through 'dep' then foo2 satisfies 'dep'
dependency too" for all i. This can be done easily with alpm_depcmp.
(We don't need the slow alpm_db_whatprovides at all.)
