Description of problem:
During package choosing in text mode the user is forced to use a little box with
a tree menu. There is much screen real estate that is unused. It is not necc. to
make the user press f2 to get a package description since there is enough space
for at least a short description.

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-10-31 17:44:34 UTC
We do not plan on investing in the text mode interface at this time.

Comment 2 Joseph Shraibman 2002-10-31 21:02:46 UTC
You could at least make sure it uses all the vertial real estate for browsing
the tree in the scroll box. That should be a trivial change.
