I admit it. I can't remember all the options. Hang your head in shame with me.
Tried making a well-named script for every worthwhile pacman "function" I could see. Feel free to suggest others for consideration.

* Always runs adding "--color=auto" to pacman.
* Aggressively uses "-y" aka "--refresh" to update the master package list from the servers. Sacrifices some speed to ensure always being up to date.
* Automatically runs sudo when needed. (Sometimes runs sudo needed by the "-y" flag, which wouldn't be needed otherwise.)
* package-contents and package-provides aren't pacman "functions" -- they're provided by the pkgfile program.
* Each script passes all arguments along to pacman/pkgfile (not just the first), so you can pass through additional arguments if needed.
* Run "package-help" for help.
