More nits:

 * It would be nice if one could select a different location of pkgsrc
   than /usr/pkgsrc, a command line switch or so may be in order
 * I like the idea of showing the current directory in the upper right
 * When running any external commands (for install, deinstall, etc.)
   please wait at the end, and ask the user to press return or so.
 * Some way to show dependencies would be nice, e.g. when an installed
   package is shown, getting a list of pkgs that require this pkg would be
   nice (so I know what I have to delete first :)
 * When confirming de-install of a package, don't only offer "yes/no", but
   add a "recursive" option to run "pkg_delete -r" => "Y/n/r"
 * When showing information about a certain pkg, please show the
   corresponding pkgsrc dir in the upper right corner, too
 * Installation of binary pkg could pick some default, like the
   bin-install target does
