Comment (by kallisti5):

 Ok, that makes sense.

 It seems like the semi correct logic would be:

 1) More than one package (installed vs non-installed)? Combine them.
 Display the later version available (local or remote)
 2) If repo version is later than installed version, show that there is an
 update somehow.

 maybe add a "-v" that would show all packages + versions (for figuring out
 dependency issues, etc)

 All just ideas. I have no issues throwing together some patches if no-one
 has time to make these improvements. Could we call this bug an enhancement
 instead and re-open it?
