I'd like -- nay, love -- to see a "Display more entries" option for the short package history section. On many days, said section more than fills up between visits to the site and so to check which packages have been removed during my absence, I have to open the general package history page and load additional sections until I reach the juncture at which I last refreshed the site. Generally, this is just a matter of hitting the spacebar a bunch of times and thus a minor annoyance at worst, however this manual approach becomes rather impractical when Valve modifies a great many subs, such as the recent sunsetting of the codeclass, gamecode and territorycode flags (I tried to use a macro recorder to help in this instance only for Firefox to crash after some 3,000 "presses" -- and I still hadn't reached the end of the massive line of related sub changes) or when a large sale is approaching and discount periods are attached to the relevant subs. In these cases, the ability to expand the short package history section would be a godsend as it focuses solely on additions/removals/name changes.
Edit: Another, more recent example: SteamDB only just five hours ago picked up on a bunch of old changenumbers that collectively pertain to tens of thousands of packages.
