 - Change the option name to --assume-installed
 - Add manpage
 - Make the API consistent by passing around alpm_depend_t only, no char*
   - returning a char* list in *_get_* would require either saving it
     (bad) or creating it on request which would require the user to
     free it (bad because different from all other *_get_* functions.
   - This means exporting alpm_dep_free and alpm_splitdep
 - *_set_* now aborts on errors
 - splitdep moved to pacman.c due to API change
 - Now works for -R
 - Testcase for -R and for -S --assume-installed with just a package name

Thanks to Andrew and Jason.
