Saw this when I was playing some more with -D today.

 > ./src/pacman/pacman -D --help
usage:  lt-pacman {-D --database} <options> <package(s)>
       --asdeps         mark packages as non-explicitly installed
       --asexplicit     mark packages as explicitly installed
       --config <path>  set an alternate configuration file
       --logfile <path> set an alternate log file
       --noconfirm      do not ask for any confirmation
       --noprogressbar  do not show a progress bar when downloading files
       --noscriptlet    do not execute the install scriptlet if one exists
   -v, --verbose        be verbose
       --debug          display debug messages
   -r, --root <path>    set an alternate installation root
   -b, --dbpath <path>  set an alternate database location
       --cachedir <dir> set an alternate package cache location
       --arch <arch>    set an alternate architecture

Are some of these options used with -D, or can they be removed?  I am 
thinking of  --noprogressbar, --noscriptlet, --arch, --noconfirm (?).
