Subject: dpkg-query [-l|-W] does not match the manpage

Package: dpkg
Version: 1.10.4
Severity: minor 


The dpkg-query manpage tells that:

       -l | --list package-name-pattern ...
              List packages matching given pattern. If no package-name-pattern
              is  given, list all packages in /var/lib/dpkg/available.
       -W | --show package-name-pattern ...
              Just like the --list option this will list all packages matching
              the given pattern. However the output can  be  customized using
              the --showformat option.

But, `dpkg-query -l' shows only packages which are installed
or removed, but not purged, so it DOES NOT list all packages from
	[135]/home/robert> dpkg-query -l  | wc -l
	[136]/home/robert> dpkg-query -l '*' | wc -l

For example it does not show packages selected for installation:
	[139]/home/robert> dpkg-query -l '*' | grep '^in' | head -1
	in  abiword-gnome  <none>         (no description available)
	[140]/home/robert> dpkg-query -l | grep '^in' | head -1

And `dpkg-query -W' displays only empty lines unless --showformat is given:
	[141]/home/robert> dpkg-query -W dpkg
	[142]/home/robert> dpkg-query -W  --showformat '${Package}\n' dpkg

It would be nice if it can use some default format.

Best Regards,
