Indeed, there is a lot of duplicated job here, I think we all agree on that.
But having everything in one function is indeed as worse :d
There is probably a way to avoid this. If the only way is using other
data structure (you mean graph here?), maybe it could be discussed

When is pacman rewritten using the kernel list implementation, and on
