[pacman-dev] PATHNAME in sync/*/desc

I'm just checking if this could be a reasonable idea and if so I'd look into
providing a patch. Would it be feasible to add a %PATHNAME% variable
to the sync desc file ?

For instance in this case, fetching "any" arch packages would not need to
symlinked into the same directory to be found...



It may provide repo maintainers with some flexibility (hard to test without
it being possible) and perhaps %PATHNAME% could also be a URL and that
might also be interesting, but the simple relative path prefix would be useful.

Any thoughts?
