In fact, you can use regex :)

allergy@hali:~$ apt-cache search '^.dm$'
gdm - GNOME Display Manager
kdm - X display manager for KDE
ldm - LTSP display manager
sdm - Secure Display Manager - secure remote access to X11
wdm - WINGs Display Manager - an xdm replacement with a WindowMaker look
xdm - X display manager
allergy@hali:~$ apt-cache --version
apt 0.6.43.3 for linux amd64 compiled on Feb 23 2006 06:35:00

I don't know about regex searches in packages descriptions, and never had the 
need for it.
