I like passing the library names because I have had some packages which 
only bump one of their many library sonames (e.g. heimdal on a minor 
version update...).  I could add a flag to pass a package.

Missing feature is my guess.  -q normally removes pkgver-pkgrel info so 
I guess this case was not considered.
