Packages matched with cave search are currently displayed with a standard set of keys and their values. For other keys, e.g. when performing cave search -k BUGS_TO foo, the matching keys/values aren't shown in the output, and that's not helpful in cases where the specified search pattern turns out to be overly broad or narrow for the user's purposes, as the user may have no obvious indication the pattern is deficient.

Also, because the current output of cave search is quite verbose, it'd be helpful to allow fine-tuning of output for each matching package, e.g. to only display cat/pkg::repo and HOMEPAGE fields. Perhaps the --format option for the cave print-foo commands could be expanded in capability and made applicable for cave search (as well as cave show, etc.).
