Yes, in those situations there would be a long display list.  However, I 
also think it would make a list of 100 packages more readable, since 
each package would be on its own line.  The current output can be a pain 
to read when you have a bunch of packages being displayed, since it is 
so compact.  Of course, most of the users probably do not pay much 
attention to exactly what packages are being installed anyway, so this 
is most likely a moot point.
