[pacman-dev] Feature Request: line buffering for stdout/stderr even when they're not tty

I wanted to make some analysis of the output of -Qkk and wanted to
pipe both stdout and stderr to a grep pipeline

pacman -Qkk 2>&1 | ...

but it seems when stdout/stderr is not a tty pacman (or some lib)
started using bigger, not line oriented buffers so the output got
badly interwoven.
