 The output for `cabal list` cannot be too verbose or it looses its purpose
 as a search.

 For details on an individual package we could use `cabal info foo`
 instead. This could present the info for the package in greater detail.
 For example, most of the meta-data from the .cabal file or installed
 package info. In particular the bug report url (#449) and the location of
 any installed documentation (#361).

 Alternatively we could do this in `cabal list` with some flag to get more
 detailed information.
