I have been thinking about this and its companion patch.  I like the 
refactoring of the pacman call into the function but dislike not 
replacing the "pacman -T" call with it.

If there is a config option for setting the "pacman" binary, and I have 
program that replaces pacman (e.g. the one based on the python alpm 
wrapper should work), then I should not need pacman on my system at all.

So I prefer the original version where the "pacman -T" call was replaced
