I've just implemented the backend part and the client library method.

An example call using curl:

curl http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/pkgdb/rest/catalogs/unstable/i386/SunOS5.10/pkgnames-and-paths-by-basedir?basedir=/opt/csw/lib/python;

The client library has the new method GetPathsAndPkgnamesByBasedir(),
it returns a dictionary from package names to the list of files.

The most rudimentary shell helper would be:

function pkgs_in_dir() { curl -s
| python -c "import cjson; import sys; print
'\n'.join(sorted(cjson.decode(sys.stdin.read())))"; }

Then you can call it:
pkgs_in_dir /opt/csw/lib/python2.7

The query is currently very slow, runs for more than 1 minute. I'll
see if I can speed it up.

I'll leave it to you to dress the returned data structure in the wiki
syntax to make a table.
