Even if we come to the agreement that a new field is better, what Nagy
said still holds.
Groups and categories are both some kind of tags to packages.
A huge part of their implementation will by consequent be the same and
should be shared.
So in my opinion, the brainstorming should go in that direction, to
find out if that is possible and how to do it.
