yeah, similar ideas about categories/tags/whatever were rised during
SCM repo structure discussion, AUR2 brainstorming etc.
Nice to see the idea didn't die :-)
Though I'm not sure if it's worth to put categorization data into
packages inself.
Wouldn't webinterface-only categorization be enought for
browsing/searchig packages?
