hmm i don't know about this since sometimes different messages requires  
different wrappings..?
but also it would be nice to have a generic wrapping...

a way to solve this is to force use of a user-defined color when  
informational messages appear
which would allow the author to use DRAMATIC text when !!! SOMETHING !!!  
_VERY_ important
needs to be read but still have some kind of genericness to it :)

also an additional feature which would be practical to have is one which  
shows the user the
last informational messages (for example pacman -i or pacman -i=10). but  
maybe you think it's
featuritis because it's already in the log if you just bother to look/know  
to look.
