i'm not sure having the "available" (new) packages list is as important
as having the list of possible updates.
i think it's obvious that having a list of updated packages is useful
information. but it's not clear that there's much value to a list of
*all* available packages -- i mean, there could be *zillions* of those,
and what are you going to do with all that info?
personally, i really only see the value in asking for new packages if
you're using a wildcard pattern or something to that effect to at least
keep the output to a manageable size.
