In terms of comparing packages, if you’re doing that visually then you are 
likely to have problems anyway, unless your eyes and brain work far better than 
most humans.  We can make that much easier by providing libxo output in pkg and 
allowing you to have a simple jq script that tells you what the differences are.

pkg can already expose the entire content of a package in json or ucl via:
$ pkg info --raw --raw-format [json|json-conpact|yaml|ucl] name

Exposing  the entire content of a package is not a root of cause.
Question in comapring of two different setup with different behaviour
and search cause of difference.

Case of only a few monolitic packages is essentiality simple then case
of 1000 combined packages.

It would be nice to have pkg(8) show packages in tree form, with option
to show just top-level meta packages or packages that have no meta.

Perhaps this is possible, but it's not obvious to me.
