> Why use the word 'available' instead of 'install'?

Because the top of the columns say that it's about the "Status", and
saying that the "Status" of that package is "install" would make
no sense.

"available" is not a great choice, tho.  The suggested "not installed"
might be a bit better, but it's longer and I'd rather try and shorten
this column.

Any other idea?
