horrible but working example
pkg help 2>&1 | sed -e '1,/Commands supported:/d ; /For more information
on the different commands/,$d; s/^   *// ; s/  .*.*$// ;/^$/d'

There's bound to be better ways, I was just bored enough to knock this up.
note s/^    *//   is a tab, while s/  .*.*$// is 2 spaces
dont think our sed has any other way to express tab other than an actual
tab (ctrl-v then tab on the command line)
