Current status of PackageKit backends

Well, hacking is going good. New backends are being developed and merged, and the underlying daemon is a lot more stable. There are now helpers for threaded backends, so in theory they are as easy to write as the external spawned backends. I've merged lots of patches this weekend, and only have two more things on the “complete before first release” list.

So, all being good, I hope to release version 0.1.0 in the next few weeks.
