currently (at least in Synaptic 0.61ubuntu9) the Edit->Search menu item allows you to "look in"

-Description and Name
- Provided Packages

I think it would greatly improve usability of Synaptic to add a search option, next to those already available, for searching among the files provided by the [installed] packages.

I'm able to do almost everything from GUI except for this particular operation for which I need to use the website:


Thanks and keep up the good work!
