 Since the section doesn't relate to the location on disk anymore,
 perhaps the most simple yet efficient solution would be to deprecate
 "Section" in favor of "Categories" and just have a list of them (e.g.:
 gnome, games, math).  Why deprecate "section"?  Think dselect.  Or, if
 you must, just leave "section" alone and add "categories".
