I didn't do anything like this yet in my current changes, because it is
a more complicated patch: it would change the interface between pkg_chk
and pkg_rr.

Currently pkg_rr reads text output from pkg_chk. If pkg_chk sets the
flags, then pkg_rr just invokes pkg_chk, ignoring output, but then has
to check for the mismatch=YES flags. It would probably also require a
new flag for pkg_chk.

For now I wanted to stay away from this, but if this is considered the
way to go, I can do it.
