Not to be a nag or anything, but I've said this a lot recently.
Everyone has ideas; good ideas, bad ideas, ideas in general.  Your
ideas are actually good.  The problem is that I barely have enough
time to implement all *my* ideas, so I know I don't have time to
implement yours.

While these are decent ideas, the best thing you can do is actually
provide a patch to this list.  Please read the "submitting-patches"
file in the cvs root of pacman-lib.
