My opinion: imho between two major libalpm releases we are allowed to tune it
[line now ;-] (otherwise we should release only bugfix releases in the future).
I may have misinterpreted the reason of revert, but I had "stable API" feeling
only (from frugalware).
In these situations some kind of pminfo_t-like stuff with
alpm_info_get_dl_total() accessors might be a bit more transparent.

I don't know whether the original patch was good or not, but hopefully in the
future we will rework the whole transaction system -- so the API as well, if needed.
