    Remove epoch as an independent field · bf46e046

    Instead, go the same route we have always taken with version-release in
    libalpm and treat it all as one piece of information. Makepkg is the only
    script that knows about epoch as a distinct value; from there on out we will
    parse out the components as necessary.
    This makes the code a lot simpler as far as epoch handling goes. The
    downside here is that we are tossing some compatibility to the wind;
    packages using force will have to be rebuilt with an incremented epoch to
    keep their special status.
