Ivan, I completely agree with faceted classification! Thanks!

        The only thing I have to add to this suggestion is /not/ to use
        a strictly hierarchical classification, allowing for a single
        egg to reside under multiple categories.  (Like: Role/Program,
        Development/Library and Protocol/HTTP, if the egg in question
        happens to provide both an HTTP client library, and one or more
        example applications built on top of it.)  See also [1].

        For a viable software classification, check, e. g., debtags [2]
        (though it certainly isn't the only one available.)
