Thanks for the suggestion! The following will be in the upcoming release:

 i        WORD or /REGEXP/  about any of the above
 r        NONE              report updatable modules
 ls       AUTHOR            about files in the author's directory
    (with WORD being a module, bundle or author name or a distribution
    name of the form AUTHOR/DISTRIBUTION)
