If you use PackageKit-glib2, and some of the code in gnome-packagekit
(GpkTask) it's a few lines of code. I'm still not sure showing the
user feedback for a refresh cache operation, but that's up to you.

Note, you can refresh using gpk-application, and it wouldn't hurt to
add a patch like you originally suggested. I'm awaiting patches :)
