ATM the script is separated from repo-add and run by a cron job. I think it 
would be best to include it into repo-add. This way it would be quite 
independent from arch, more effective because repo-add knows which packages 
have changed and filelists and package dbs would allways be consistent. Last 
but not least this should simplify the script.

Of course this should only be optional and enabled by a switch 
like "repo-add --with-filelists"
