[pacman-dev] alpm_list: missing quick access to last element

I'm back to pacman-dev, and just just found this out profiling pacman-cvs
(pacman -Ss test):

                0.12    0.00   13785/13785       alpm_list_add [7]
[8]     42.9    0.12    0.00   13785         alpm_list_last [8]

alpm_list_last is eating up 42.9% CPU-time on my slow epia system. This is
due the missing "last element hint" which speeded up the add operation
before aaron introduced the public alpm_list type two months ago. I
consider adding the "last element" member again. Any objections?
