Well, I suggest rewriting _alpm_sync_prepare as soon as possible. You needn't
apply my patch, but the current version is buggy and messy.
Without going into details:
-sync1003.py: you need a more clever checkdeps.
-alpm_checkdeps is called in the beginning of the function, THEN some
hard-to-understand manipulations are done in the target list to resolve
conflicts, and (upgrade) dependencies are not checked again!
-removing a package from target list may induce a new conflict (for example: the
old version conflicted, but we assumed that it will be upgraded to a
non-conflicting one; but after we removed the upgrade-package, we got the
conflict again)
You can create pactest files to test these.
(IIRC, my patches solve all the problems above.) 

Bye, ngaba
