Oh, the second -i adds the `Optional For' output. pacman(1) omits that
useful fact. Does this count as a report to get it added?
Display information on a given package. The -p option can be
used if querying a package file instead of the local database.
Passing two --info or -i flags will also display the list of
backup files and their modification states.
So I could have done `pacman -Sii gst-plugins-bad' and then looked at
the `Optional For' to see what of those I had installed and were
upgraded recently. Thanks.
