BTW, I would like something similar for -S operations too:

# pacman -S foo bar
error: target not found: foo

However, I can not see how to do that (without passing some value around
to lots of functions) while avoiding the potential group selection
dialog if we did something like:

# pacman -S foo base bar

Any pointers would be appreciated.
