The Debian archive is admirably vast.  Out of this free software sea,
you can usually fish the one sarge package you need with debram.  Debram
sorts sarge's 14,000+ packages into broad classes, then divides and
redivides them into 470 finer, more specific branches.

Debram is part of the Debtags project.  Debtags development info here:
