The systemd command line tools are not supposed to call into
higher-level daemons to query data. This sounds like the wrong way
around. It sound like someone should teach packagekit about systemd

Also, systmed does not want to get involved into any concept of
"packages". It is what distributions are made of, but this is not
systemd's task to manage of describe.

Please do not merge anything like this.
