Lightbulb [ANN] Some more package listing utils

I thought I'd post these. Basically you have 3 commands - ph, sbh and pah.

ph - package history
sbh - history
pah - patch history


'ph N' lists last N packages installed. If N is omitted all packages are listed.

They are a fast way to list /var/log/packages/*

I have an electrician coming sometime this afternoon (6th March) so I'll need to shut down my server for a while. Hopefully not for too long.
