[pacman-dev] proposition: alpm_list type

Currently the "alpm_list" type is considered fairly "private", hiding
(through the use of the _ prefix) a handful of useful routines.
I suggest this interface be exposed in full. This will allow us to
remove the 'list' type from pacman's source and just reuse alpm_list.
Somewhere in the design docs it says "ALPM shouldn't force the use of
a given list type". It doesn't, and still won't. Functions which
return an alpm_list now still need the accessors to get at the list,
and still must be copied into a custom list type. In fact, alpm
_requires_ a custom list.
Does anyone have any issues with this?
