Summary and Info:

It would be handy if -Fs could also output the groups that a package is a member of and whether it is already installed (perhaps even the version that is installed).
Analogous to -Ss:

$ pacman -Ss pacman
testing/pacman 5.0.0-1 (base base-devel) [installed]
A library-based package manager with dependency support
core/pacman 4.2.1-4 (base base-devel) [installed: 5.0.0-1]
A library-based package manager with dependency support
core/pacman-mirrorlist 20160124-1 [installed]
Arch Linux mirror list for use by pacman

Compared to the current(5.0.0-1) output of -Fs:

$ pacman -Fs pacman
testing/pacman 5.0.0-1
core/pacman 4.2.1-4
This task depends upon
