See URPM for callback parameters

There's 2 callbacks that are specific to "urpm::install" though:

open_helper($data, $type, $id)
close_helper($db, $data, $type, $id)

Those are called when opening/closing a package file, whether when rpmlib verify or install packages.

The "close_helper" callback receives an extra $db parameter used in eg: drakx to check whether a package really was installed through a DB query.
