When I first started using Debian, it had a little over 1000 packages.
Today, it has over 51000. Yet there are very few categories, so while
searching is quite easy, browsing is often no longer practical. For
example, there are around 600 packages classified under 'Python
Programming Language', over 500 under 'Documentation', and over 1000
under 'Development'. ISTM that subcategories or some other
finer-grained classification would be a real help.
