Hi Aron,

I reviewed and tested your patch. You're correct, the purpose of this
checks isn't to create the missing name/evr/arch ids but just to check
whether package exists or not. If they don't exist there's a different query
down the road which is supposed to create them.

I commited the patch as b32b6da20c4bb7499deb377a6f36783fabc7ed1c.  I
even went a bit further ahead and replaced also lookup_evr() and
lookup_package_arch() with table joins.

Thanks for your patch.
