Doing that on a website, manually, by checking boxes... would be tedious
indeed. The computer already knows the information, better to automate it.

sbopkg isn't my favorite thing in the world, but it does a good job of
finding locally-installed packages that are outdated (have new versions
on SBo).

I've never used sbotools, but surely it has the same functionality. I'm
tempted to say "if it doesn't, I'll eat my hat", but I'm running low on
hats lately...
