I removed the extra spaces between name-version.
As for the info concerning being installed or not, the short answer is
slapt-get --list provides that. The longer answer is it is unclear at this
point where the overlap is between the slapt-get and slapt-src.

This info is straight from the slackbuild info files. The SLACKBUILDS.TXT
format itself is not finalized.
> Another bug:

This is due to the previous point. This should be resolved in an updated
SLACKBUILDS.TXT format change.
