Oh right, I forgot that hack.

Yes, something's obviously broken, but as long as the retrievers report
non-existant files with non-zero exit codes, it Should Work.

I don't like over-logging, but for testing purposes I suggest you put in
some fprintfs to stderr in try_get_packages in retriever.c.

Hmm. I wonder if the problem could be that it finds no packages at all,
thus the linked list returned to anna is empty. Maybe that's a problem.
I'll check it out.
