When working with multiple versions of a package you often want to use
the most recent version.
A feature that would help for package systems is to be able to query
ghc-pkg for the best version, or to list the versions in increasing
$ ghc-pkg best_version Cabal
$ ghc-pkg versions Cabal
You get the picture. Obviously, this feature isn't critical since we
could use 'ghc-pkg list' and work our way from there, but it would be nice.
If you like the idea we might send you a patch.
