Subject: apt: [apt-cache] display debin/contol information 'Origin:' with cmd 'search'
Package: apt
Version: 0.6.42
Severity: wishlist

It's is common for people to include 3rd party sources to
/etc/apt/sources.list for files that have not been include din Debian
yet. Or files that cannot be delivered through Debian project.

The command:

   # apt-cahe search REGEXP

is useful to see what's available. It would be very nice if it were
possible to see which of the package are from outside of the Debian
from this condensed liting.

Properly set 3rd party package set debian/conrol header:

  Origin: Maintainer

Which could be made available displayed with the "show" command. The
best would be to append the value to the end of the one-liners, like

  # apt-cache show ^foo
  foo-utility - Do this and that [Origin: Maintainer]
  foo-additional - Do this and that [Origin: Maintainer]
  foo - The standard Debian utility

Alternatively, a new apt-cache option could make the Origin appear as
shown in the above example.
