libdpkg C API

This is the documentation for the libdpkg C API. It is divided in an internal API and a public API. Applications closely tied to dpkg can make use of the internal API, the rest should only assume the availability of the public API.

Applications need to define the LIBDPKG_VOLATILE_API macro to acknowledge that the API is to be considered volatile, please read doc/README.api for more information.
