How to list packages in various priorities or sections


I have used aptitude show $(package_name) to list the details of a given package.

In the output of the vlan package for example one gets output like:


Priority: extra
Section: misc


How might one determine all packages (installed or not) that fall under a particular "Priority" or "Section" ?

I was thinking something pseudo like aptitude show $(all packages) | grep (essential or required or important or standard or optional or extra)
