I'd like to see the functionality of applist.py <http://code.google.com/p/applist/> folded into the standard Python distribution. Additionally, for the user-installed applications that appear in the App. Manager interface, I would like to see the version information included as well... e.g. Select -> View details -> Version.
Obviously you could add all sorts of other functionality, too. There is other data in View Details such as Supplier, Certificate info, etc. You could add version information (if it exists?) for the built-in apps. You could also add a search capability: is this application installed? , etc.
