Web API to get all packages with a given set of tags?

Is there some web API to get a list of packages with a given set of
tags?  I would like to get the list of packages in Debian with tags
'use::learning && role::program && field::*' and map it to screen shots
on <URL: http://screenshots.debian.net/ > to update a web page showing
the relevant packages.

It would be nice to be able to also search for the packages currently in
Squeeze, Wheezy and testing.  Perhaps we could create some automatically
maintained tags for the presence in a given version of Debian?

Happy hacking
