 - Use _alpm_splitdep rather than implementing it myself (thanks to Andrew for
   the idea)

I'd love feedback on the idea/implementation (preferably from Allan) and also
general feedback on this try at documenting it (in man pacman):

> --ignore-depends provider=version,...
> Make pacman believe the package named provider with version version is
> installed when doing dependency checks. This allows to disable certain
> dependency checks without affecting everything the way the --nodeps option
> does.
