For this particular case I am a big fan of the debtags search interface


Try it! Type in something, e.g. "music player" and you are presented 
with a list of packages. On the right are a list of tags. Click one
in the top section to remove it from the active list, click one in the
lower section to add it to the active list, or click "no" to exclude
anything with that tag. You can narrow down a list of interesting 
packages quite quickly.
