IIRC, this was reverted, but that is just one more argument to your 'not stable
API' "campaign".

In my opinion the parameters of callback functions should be reworked (warning,
API change ;-). My preferred solution would be putting one param, a pointer to a
complicated union or whatever, which can be accessed via
alpm_info_get_xfered(ptr) etc. thus making it much more flexible. Thoughts?
