Description:
It would be nice if there were a few additional columns in the software
management interface.  One specific column I am interested in would be
an architecture column, to show you the architecture of an installed
package or the architecture the package would have if you were to
install it.  The other column would show the repository of the package,
either the repository of an installed package or the repository the
package would be downloaded from if you were to install it.

Todd, were do you see benefit for the user in doing so?

One example would be for users of x86-64 installations, for instance,
to figure out which packages they have that are i586 and which are x86-
64.  Currently you have to look through each package's versions list
one-at-a-time.  There is no easy wat to determine which packages are
x86-64 and which are i586. 
Similarly, there is no easy wat to determine where installed packages
came from.  For instance if you are trying to figure out which packages
you have from the default installation and which have been changed
since then, or if you want to see if you can safely remove a repository
you do not think you need anymore.  Once again you have to look through
the versions list of every package in the repository.

Just the issue that I have, Todd.  An arch column would ease things
considerably.
