In addition to what I wrote, maybe take a look at PackagePaneBrowser.

There is no such thing in the Trunk repository.

I don't think there is a reason except for mistakes, or splitting up or
merging packages later.

What exactly do you want to see? List all extension methods on classes in
the selected category? Or find all extension methods outside of the
selected category? The latter does not make sense without a package. The
former does not match the code you posted, as far as I understand it.

In both of the cases above, I think it does not make sense to create a
temporary package. The package is Tools, so it does not make sense to
search for extensions provided by Tools-Inspector, does it? To find
extension methods on classes in Tools-Inspector, you don't need a package.

Kind regards,
