Strange, I get lots of hits with the last command:

$ aptitude search '~i~D(libc6~V2\.3)' | wc -l

I am on Sid which means libc6 version 2.6-1.

I have the impression that I get a large number of matching packages
because I have stable, testing, unstable and experimental in my
sources.list. This command seems to match package "foo" as long as any
known version of "foo" specifies a "2\.3" version dependency on libc6.
This does not have to be the version that is actually installed.
Therefore I think this command does not really help users who
accidentally made a mixed system out of their Debian installation.
