This is a common question (how to lead users to packages that they might
use).  I do not think that suggests/recommends will accomplish this goal.  I
think one good idea would be to write a program which fetches the popcon
data and shows the user a list of packages, with descriptions, that are
popular among other users, but which they do not have installed.
