Great name! :-)

BTW, I've just realized that there might be a problem with "no longer
in any sync db" that, I think was not in 3.0's -Sc:
if SystemA has core,extra,community enabled and SystemB only
core&extra then doing -Sc on SystemB will cleanup community packages
from the shared cache.
I don't know if it's worth to fix this by using a more complicated
(filename comparison, AFAIR) aproach like in 3.0. :-/
