I'm not really paying attention to these because my aim is to use
pyalpm in namcap, and make sure it remains independent of Archlinux
things, just as pacman/libalpm. But having all of these would be nice
for Python fans wanting to develop any sort of wrapper or helper.

I'd be pleased if anyone wants this to become an official project. I
do this as a personal project, but with particular uses in mind.
