 * Make sure all the alpm_list_t changes are valid (especially alpm_list_free)
-* The --debug flag should't need a silly mask.
-* PM_LOG_FLOW1 and PM_LOG_FLOW2 seem extraneous at this point. These should both
-  be moved to PM_LOG_DEBUG messages, as it's going to end up being impossible to
-  keep track of what is "flow1" and what is "flow2"
 * src/pacman:
     - There's quite a few single function headers which contain the pacman_*
       functions.  We should move these to a single header (pacman.h) to clean up
       the source a bit.
-    - config_t duplicates much of what can be accessed from the alpm_option_*
-      interface.  Determine what can / can't be removed and do so.
-    - initialize alpm BEFORE parsing args, so we can get rid of a handful of
-      local lists and things in pacman.c (see below)
-    - fix the "--debug" parameter. requiring a bitmask from the user is silly.
-      we can parse this can send a real bitmask to alpm.
 * lib/libalpm:
-    - Remove `root` param from alpm_initialize.  We can simply initialize to /
-      and call set_root at a later time.  This allows us to initiliaze earlier.
     - move logging (alpm_logaction) out of the library.  log files should be
       written by the app, not the library.  Adding a PM_LOG_* constant that
       frontends can recognize and send to a file is probably a good idea.
-    - maybe it's my fault, but I see little difference between PM_LOG_FLOW1,
-      PM_LOG_FLOW2, and PM_LOG_DEBUG.  We might want to just do away with flow1
-      and flow2 and use debug across the board.
     - clear up list allocation/deallocation - some lists need to be free'd, some
       do not and there is no clear indication WHEN this should happen.
     - remove DB entries (directories) on a read error?

 **** BUGS ****
 * Removal of conflicts on -A and -U (INCOMPLETE)
-* ordering of installed packages based on dependencies
+* ordering of packages to be installed based on dependencies
     i.e. pkga depends=(pkgb pkgc), pkgb depends=(pkgc)
     pacman -S pkga pkgb pkgc
     > a depends on b and c, move them: pkgb pkgc pkga
