Bug Description

Barry Warsaw commented that the current "packaging branch is up-to-date" is a bit verbose, and a bit hard to spot exactly the data he wants (version strings).

Suggestions follow.

Case 1: everything is up-to-date

1.4.1-4 is CURRENT in Oneiric

Case 2: packaging branch is out-of-date

1.0.2-0ubuntu1 is OUT-OF-DATE (Ubuntu Oneiric has: 1.0.4-0.1)

If you want to expose a configuration/cli knob, then the above would be less
verbose output, with more verbose output possibly being:

Case 1:

Most recent Oneiric version: 1.4.1-4
Packaging branch status: CURRENT

Case 2:

Most recent Oneiric version: 1.0.4-0.1
Packaging branch version: 1.0.2-0ubuntu1
Packaging branch status: OUT-OF-DATE

Also (perhaps separately) can we have an option to turn it off altogether,
just in case people want that.
