we use libpacman is several places:
* splitting the repo to several cds (if foo depends on bar, then foo
can't be on cd1 if bar is on cd2)
* testsuite (for exaple for checking if foo depends on bar, then bar
should be in the repo as well)
probably at other places as well.
and this would not be possible if originally there would be no libalpm.
so don't think it was a useless work! :)
