It would be nice if slackpkg could provide a simple (non-interactive) way to return a list of pending updates/new packages via the command line.

The patches I'm attaching add two slackpkg commands (and add one function to core-functions.sh): list-new and list-upgrades

I'm also attaching a script which I use with cron to automatically check for updates every day (and email the list of updates to root).
