[aur-dev] Removing category field from AUR.

In light of recent discussions I've been thinking of removing the
category data from AUR.

My view is that descriptions should be sufficient for users to search to
find what they need. If a description isn't sufficient then it should be
rewritten until it works. The category just adds another search option that
really only complicates things. Sorting by category is the only
semi-useful contribution that it makes.

Any opinions or examples where category actually can exceed a well
written description is appreciated. Thanks!
