I was thinking of including it in the info that is spit out when you search
for a package, for example:

eix -e pidgin
* net-im/pidgin (#gentoo-pidgin, #gentoo-desktop)
     Available versions:  (~)2.0.0 (~)2.0.1 (~)2.0.2 {avahi bonjour cjk crypt
dbus debug doc eds gadu gnutls groupwise gstreamer gtk krb4 meanwhile msn
ncurses networkmanager nls perl prediction qq sasl silc spell ssl
startup-notification tcl tk xscreensaver zephyr}
     Homepage:            http://pidgin.im/
     Description:         GTK Instant Messenger client
