Default Allow UseDelta option to specify a delta ratio

Rework the frontend and backend to allow passing a ratio value in for
UseDelta rather than having a hardcoded #define-d 0.7 value always used.
This is useful for those with fast connections, who would likely benefit
from tuning this ratio to lower values; it is also useful for general
testing purposes.

The libalpm API changes for this, but we do support the old config file
format with a no-value 'UseDelta' option; in this case we simply use the
old default of 0.7.

We clamp the ratio values to a sane range between 0.0 and 2.0, allowing
ratios above 1.0 for testing purposes.

Ack-by: Allan

Looks good from some basic testing here.

My only thought (which is possibly full of bikeshed, so feel free to
ignore...) was do we really want to stick with a ratio or move to an
absolute size difference? 0.9 of a 100MB package is much more useful
than 0.9 of a 1KB package.
