Default Dependency: pyalpm: requires pacman<3.6 (workaround install pyalpm?)

Guys:

There is a strange dependency with pyalpm that prevented upgrade to pacman
4 which I solved by -- installing pyalpm?? Installing pyalpm pulled in pacman
as a dependency which successfully completed the upgrade, but pacman would not
-Syu and upgrade on its own. That doesn't make sense. The -Syu error was:


:: The following packages should be upgraded first :
pacman
:: Do you want to cancel the current operation
:: and upgrade these packages now? [Y/n] y

resolving dependencies...
looking for inter-conflicts...
error: failed to prepare transaction (could not satisfy dependencies)
:: pyalpm: requires pacman<3.6


So I tried the following and answered NO to the pacman upgrade. Evidently
pyalpm pulled it in as a dep anyway:


15:18 providence:~/dt/icons/coolicons/openOffice> sudo pacman -Sy --needed pyalpm

Not sure if this is an issues that will catch others trying to upgrade, but
it definitely was a screwy way to work-around pacman not upgrading on its own...
