I finished the "library outside libalpm" which I called libalpm_config
- I based it off a SAX parser, kind-of - and threw a git repo in my
public_html folder on al.org with the branch - Dan grabbed that as a
remote repo, but I don't think he's done anything with it since.

http://www.archlinux.org/~travis/git/pacman.git  is the repo.  Don't
have any fancy web-git set up for it tho.
