I'm not sure this answers the underlying question concerning how to
find useful packages where the name is not indicative of the
functionality.  It's a hard but generally important question.

Assuming seahorse is not installed on the system can you describe how
you expect typical desktop users who need the functionality that
seahorse provides to find it and install it without knowing the
package name before hand? A screencast of you pretending to be a user
installing searching for and installing seahorse would be interesting
to watch.

Once installed how do users know where to look in the menus to find it?
