Well, pacman outputs "[installed]" in cyan, so I think I'm getting things here,
aren't I?

Anyway, this reminds me of another issue: the string "installed" is hard coded,
so it does not take the locale into account! Try to run pacsearch on a local
package (e.g. a package installed from the AUR) and you will see.

I've managed to fix this issue with a gettext.

By the way I've implemented a Arch-agnostic version, added a -n, --nocolor
option, and fixed a performance issue. Will submit a new patch as soon as

The best thing about growing older is that it takes such a long time.
