[pacman-dev] Why alpm_list.h?

since I started to dig into pacman's code, I've also started to wonder why
exactly libalpm reinvents the wheel by using it's own list implementation
rather than sys/queue.h (see QUEUE(3) for details). Is it for backwards
compatibility or what are the exact reasons to handle it this way?

Kind Regards,
