The show command would give the end user a look at information things like:

The home page for the package

The version of the package

Dependencies of the package

There are a couple of new commands in the works:

https://bitbucket.org/ianb/pip/issue/94/please-add-status-command
https://bitbucket.org/ianb/pip/issue/197/option-to-show-what-version-would-
be

Either command, if accepted, could be extended to cover the items you listed.
Thanks for your request by the way.

It looks like

   pip show <package> 

only works for installed packages and not a prospective package. Is there a way to see what would be installed by a doing a

   pip install <package> 

??

First thing that came to my mind is pip install <package> --no-deps --no-download --no-install.
