Hmm. I remember that I didn't really know what to do here. alpm_sync_prepare
should automagically resolve dependencies. So "usually" this should be an empty
list (I mean alpm_resolvedeps should report the error or this should be an empty
list). If this is not an empty list, the error message may say nothing, because
this is a "manipulated" upgrade and remove list, what's more this may be misleading.

The same holds for alpm_resolvedeps errors:
User does a "pacman -S foo" and get something like "cannot satisfy bar
dependency of baz"... This is not very informative...

But I can admit, that this is probably better than nothing.
