Reworking genbasedir....

To make genbasedir easier to work on in the future (when we move to using some SQL engine for the data store for metadata), I reworked the functions to allow us to use an integer based pkgId instead of using the string name. This should speed up the dependency map functions in app-get considerably when doing package look ups since string comparisons aren't the fastest operations in the world in any language.

As an aside, I've gotten buy in from Jeff Johnson, the maintainer of the version of RPM at to add in some Debian inspired tags to make my work on app-get easier. :)
