Not yet, it's currently in the extreme KISS (keep it simple, stupid)
phase and has no supporting tools (beyond the tools to build the
packages). Either look in your site-packages folder, or peruse
/Library/Receipts/. There probably are existing tools, not specific to
Python, that allow you to browse the package receipts in a nice way.
That feature is one of the reasons that PackageManager sucks. That
check runs arbitrary Python code in-process, which can cause crashes
(at start!), instability, and the check only works once (if you upgrade
something, you must restart PackageManager to clear the stale stuff
