Thanks! But it's admittedly rather well hidden. So hidden that even I
forgot about that view. :-)

If I recall correctly, the abandoned 0.6.9 branch had a feature where
you can select the "Source Package" line in a binary package view and
then press Enter on it ("[" would be another, probably more helpful
option) and then you got a list of all binary packages from that
source package.

Maybe we can ressurrect that feature from the 0.6.9 branch — in case
my recollection is correct.
