Excellent. I've refactored 0001 slightly and committed it.

0002 is incorrect, you need to do the check in src/pk-transaction.c
rather than client/pk-console.c -- if the user tries using
gpk-install-local-file or the QT bindings then this isn't going to be
checked. It shouldn't take too long to move the code, but make sure you
create a new error type to convey the failure to the developer.
