Well, this is subjective. I don't like these "_alpm_findinfo()" calls
and double (list) bookkeeping. However, after thinking a bit I have no
better idea atm [probably in the future we should introduce a
"transaction package" type (successor of pmsyncpkg_t) to store internal
data (including delta_path etc.)], and this is a minor issue (we can
rework this part easily later, if needed), so I revoke my complaint ;-)
