We're in the same page then ;-)

Now another note for maintainers...  Bug #665824 also requested
something like this, I'm not going to merge because it contains
unrelated stuff and it does not add clarity, but the tl;dr version is:

>- get a command to search packages and see their tags :
>$ aptitude search em
>i      emacs           test,foo
>i      emfoo           bar
>i      barem           other-tag

Which would be already possible if there was a %escape listing all
tags for a package, the same that this bug is about.
