While trying to get rid of the action buttons (remove, keep, install)
and so moving to a more object oriented way of package status management
I had the idea of replacing the buttons with version radio buttons. 

This could be a way of including the release selection, too. But I don't
know if this is really usable in daily life. The actions should still be
available in a menu or toolbar.

A mockup is attached.
