This sort of problem is the reasoning behind some of the fun and games
of the apt backend (at least with the sqlite caching switched on for
that). I think the big problem is how to create a persistent backend
object without blocking other tools that also want to use the relevant
packaging system, but that's probably something that needs to be done
in different ways for different backends.
