IMHO there are much more packages with insanely long version numbers,
as the screenshot has indicated.

I would suggest to either give the user the means to adjust the format,
or to make it more dynamic, e.g. to use 60% line length for the package
name, and 20% each for both version numbers, regardless if you have 80
or 200 columns.
