Yeah, I did notice this but didn't know what to do or if we should try
to "fix" it. Realize also that non-English locales use different
lengths for the line prefixes anyway, so some might be under 80, most
will be over 85 at this point.

At least for now most of them only show "None". We could adjust the
English variant of the message to do some newline after the header
before the value, but that seems a bit hokey and would be harder to
parse as we couldn't change that for the `pacman -Qi foobar | cat`
