Yeah :) So this use case may be better met with the information on the
page that shows "outputs" rather than versions. You can get to that page
by clicking on "Include outputs" at the top right.

The docker package is a nice example here because for the latest version
it's both been built, and build by

Maybe something more should be displayed on the versions page, but I
think it would need to capture some of the subtlety here where there is
a mixture of substitute availability for a particular version.
