It's more for the sake of consistency.  The -Q{e,m,n} command highlights
the left (of two) columns, as does -Ql (although the second column is much
bigger in this case).  Are you sure that you don't want -{Q,S}g to follow

Yep, I was just listing it for the sake of completeness.  As you can
probably tell by now, I like to be comprehensive about these things :-).

If I run -Qq or -Slq for example, a single column of package names is
output.  Depending on your response to my first paragraph, you might want
this to be colourised as well.
