[Aptitude-devel] Bug#912082: aptitude: use apt-file and dpkg -L to add list of files to the UI for each source/binary package

Package: aptitude
Version: 0.8.11-3+b1
Severity: wishlist

In the UI for individual source/binary packages when apt-file is
installed it would be nice to have a listing of the files that are
available in the package.

For packages that are installed, the `dpkg-query --listfiles` command
will be faster than apt-file and available when it isn't installed.

It might also be interesting to highlight files that are missing from
the system (such as via dpkg excludes) or modified from the package
(using the debsums input files).
