okey .. i want to ask you that the library have notifications
callbacks in order to know the progress of the package operation


pkg_add => start, download, download progress, getting dependencies, bla bla bla
pkg_delete => analizing package, removing files, execing uninstall
operations, deleting, bla bla bla

well thanks
