eu-readelf -V is already easier than binutils readelf -V, which

I know that; eu-readelf or readelf, in any case I'll have to do the same
juggling to find the library name.
Perhaps we could add a --verbose that makes readelf give more
and/or redundant data in various ways such as this.
It seriously beats me! You are ready to add a completely new option(ie.
more code, more complexities, will take more time and more of everything
else), but can not accept a patch, that is insanely small and neat and
serves the purpose.
Or perhaps you would like to hack on the "greadelf"
Fedora), or something like it. That is a GUI front-end for eu-readelf
output. (It looks nutty to me, but I haven't really tried it.) A
snazzy one could have enableable columns or tooltips or whatnot for
version/soname/etc on symbol table entries.
GUI doesn't help. I just want three columns of text output symbol name,
their version and library name.
