Cheers for that! So happy to see SRCINFO support finally merged after
the first patch surfaced 4 years ago:

This isn't anything new between 4.1 and 4.2. No need to make it release

Ack, this is mine. Will resend (albeit mostly with a TODO in place of
the Hard Thing™).

This bug is malformed. There's more than just IgnorePkg that we should
be "clarifying" in the requested manner.

> FS#41531 - pacsysclean is broken

Arguably broken since it was introduced, as it relies on parsing data
formatted for humans (not machines). expac in pacman 5.0? I started
cleaning up the code last night on an unrelated whim.

I volunteered myself to look at this, but the few solutions that I
hacked together weren't to my satisfication, and I've kind of dropped it
since then. Allan, I think this one is on you.
