Debian 1.3 suggestion

I think it might be nice to add a new field "Keywords" to the dpkg
control structure.  This would help to organize packages beyond the
section tag that currently exists.

Dselect and dftp could then select/sort based on these keywords to
help a user manage the 850 packages that exist among bo, contrib, and

There should be a standard set of keywords, but maintainers should be
free to add their own as well.
