these patches add a VerbosePkgLists option to pacman.conf which applies to install, upgrade and remove operations and produces the following example output:

    Targets (25):
    Pkg Name          New Version           Old Version          Size
    asciidoc          8.6.4-1               8.6.3-1           0.15 MB
    chromium          9.0.597.94-2          9.0.597.94-1     17.80 MB
    wine              1.3.14-1              1.3.13-2         24.67 MB
    Total Download Size:    158.41 MB
    Total Installed Size:   693.05 MB

While the output is identical to Justin Lampley's patch from March 2008 (posted here: https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/15772), the table_display function in these patches should be simpler to use.

I also consolidated size to string conversions (hope I got most of them) and made a few minor adjustments to the pacman manpage.
