Yeah, but this time something seems to have been lost.

For example, I'm 100% sure that in the past the "ocaml" package had
tags accessible via apt-cache, but now:

  $ apt-cache show ocaml|grep Tag

I don't think it's a coincidence that
http://packages.debian.org/sid/ocaml shows no tags at all for "ocaml".
The same happens for "flasm" previously mentioned in this thread,
whereas "bash" shows tags both with apt-cache and on

It seems some tag sets have been dropped for unstable or something like
that; /me speaking only with a poor knowledge of the tags propagation
workflow ...
