  For package versions, "%p" turns into the version number; "%v" and
"%V" don't display anything.  The manual is, ahem, not very clear on
this point.  By which I mean it doesn't mention this at all.

  Nope, put it after "%p".  Like I said, though, the downside will be
that this gets applied to all your lists of packages too.
