I've just committed this:

    Make pk_backend_job_files() accept an array of strings

    At the moment C/C++ backends have to convert from char** to char* which the
    daemon promptly converts back to char**.

    There's no point penalising all the backends for the spawned
backends sake and
    doing all the splitting and joining hurts performance for packages
that have a
    lot of files.

A couple of the non-spawned backends will need a tiny patch in the
next couple of weeks. I'll fix dummy and zif now.
