Yes, alpm_resolvedeps is still negligent, but sync.c is quite a black 
box for me;-) It creates some pseudo transactions/stuffs, probably one 
of them prevent pacman from fault ;-). I don't create a patch for 
resolvedeps, because in my "dream" alpm_checkdeps can add missing 
dependencies from sync repos if requested with much smaller overhead... 
(And maybe it should be able to do topo sort too, because it computes 
the dependency edges...)
You may say, that we shouldn't create such "super-function", but we 
cannot store and reuse some crutial computation results now (because of 
current data structures...)
Bye, ngaba
