Wouldn't it be wise if the category information was added to each
package's .PKGINFO file? That way clients could search for or in package
categories and the capabilities of GUI front-ends could enhanced a great
deal. As a matter of fact why was this possibility ever considered and
if so why was the idea dropped?
