Well, it would also be good if we could get a bit more state on where we
are in the transaction and record that somewhere as much as possible. 

It'd be nice to know that if we're past stage X that bits are on disk
and we just need metadata, or somesuch.

a bit finer granularity and instrumentation at the stages a pkg goes
through during a transaction would be helpful to verifying our state.
