To add to Dan's request, if you do decide to implement this feature,
it would nice to optionally show build info, to use Dan's example:

The following packages will be upgraded:
cinelerra-1.1.4-i686-jbt --> cinelerra-2.0.0-i686-jbt

Showing the build info will be helpful for slackware users, as well as
users of its derivatives, so that they can get a better idea of the
build source and arch.
