    $ umegaya-adm -p package -k key2 -v value2
    $ umegaya-adm -p package -k key2
    $ umegaya-adm -p package
    key value
    key2    value2
    $ umegaya-adm -p package2 -k key -v value3
    $ umegaya-adm -k key
    package value
    package2    value3
    $ umegaya-adm -p package2 -k key --delete
    $ umegaya-adm -k key
