That was the motivation for my question ;-) I celebrate every new PK
0.8.x-compatible backend here anyway :P

Well, that is the goal of PackageKit, and why it is so awesome :D

We can certainly and easily merge your branches, but Richard offered
you to maintain the backend directly in the PackageKit master branch,
meaning you will be able to push your patches to the PiSi backend
directly. This makes sense, because you can judge wether the changes
make sense for PiSi - I can't do that, because I never used it ^^
If you want, you can also join #PackageKit on Freenode - some
discussions happen there, and it is great for small questions.
So, if you have an account on Gitorious, just ask Richard (hughsie) to
add you as contributor.
