When I am running a script that installs a lot of packages, the "Optional dependencies for ..." sections always give me a little shock because they look a lot like error messages at first glance. I would prefer if the default was to not show them since I can always look up the information with pacman -Qi, but if that is not acceptable, then a command line option and pacman.conf option to suppress these sections would also be helpful.

This task depends upon
