The kind of emerge report I like to see

We have our kruckenberg server set up to alternate logwatch reports between Pete and I, I get them for one week and then Pete gets them for the next. We also do this with a weekly Gentoo emerge as well. Each week we do a pretend emerge to see what might be out of date on the server, and send that report to the admin on duty (either Pete or I, depending on the week). This week is my week for sysadmin, last night's emerge --pretent world report looked like:

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating world dependencies...done!

Now that's the kind of emerge I like to see. Two weeks ago there were a few items out of date (spamassassin, a Perl module and a Gentoo utility). It wasn't hard to update those, but this week is even better.
