Default ignore lost+found in /var/lib/pacman when running -Sc


i am running pacman db inside a loop (humm to speed up some pacman operation)
and when i run pacman -Sc (or -Scc); i got
Do you want to remove unused repositories? [Y/n] y
Do you want to remove /var/lib/pacman/lost+found? [Y/n] n

it's because i have a lost+found directory in /var/lib/pacman because it's the
root of a filesystem.

i find the question annyoing, as lost+found is NOT an unused repository.

may be you could just ignore lost+found (on -Sc) so that the last question
above is not asked ? that will be be really unfortunate if a real repo uses
that name.
so simply do not ask the user.

on the other hand, as the user is asked about that where is the problem ?
if ever there are some files in lost+found, he/she would have still plenty of
time to fix it because he/she has to run manually a -Sc command. and if there
is a problem the first to do is not to run -Sc !

a good or bad idea ?

your call
