The best approach remains to mirror/reflect the structure of the
emacs/elisp manuals ITR esp. as this allows for reasonable and extensibl
xrefs to source and documentation going forward. 

The 'delicious tags' approach is _not_ TRT here, nor is a strict class
hiearchy 'multiple inhertiance' or otherwise. TRT is a thesaurus in the
z39.50 sense. Zthes offers a nice set of docs, tagsets, schemas,
attribute sets, etc. for such an implentation see (URL

The CQL, SRU, Soap, interfaces could afford mutiple paths to a
controlled _and_ open 'tagset' in the cataloger/indexer sense as opposed
to the "gee I better tag this library for custom" use that emacser's
tend to employ. 

Why is it that programmers believe they make good classifiers?
