This is a request for comments on FS#18709. It requests adding a
-q/--question option similar to make which does nothing but returns 0 if
all packages are already built and 1 if not. It might be useful in scripts.
Any opinions on this? I see no reason why not. The name is a bit weird
but given that is what make uses, I see no reason not to be consistent.
There is a patch (http://bugs.archlinux.org/task/18709?getfile=5006)
which is fairly minor, but needs reviewing and documentation.
