1) It would be nice if pkg_info could show all packages from a certain 
category; for example:

$ pkg_info -g games
xtux-0.2000.11.15   2D multi-player shootout using images from the Open 
Software scene
tileworld-1.2.1nb1  "Game based on Chip's Challenge"
xboard-4.2.6nb1     Graphical frontend for chess engines and servers
gnuchess-5.07nb2    GNU chess engine
rocksndiamonds-3.1.0 Game like Boulder Dash, Emerald Mine, or Sokoban (X11 

Also when I look for one specific package, I do:
  pkg_info | grep speex

Maybe a switch like:

$ pkg_info -1 speex
speex-1.0.4nb1      Open-source, patent-free voice codec

(I am looking for one-line format showing version and single line 

If any of the above ideas are implemented, please let me know.
