Even within these categories there is some need for finer grain.
For example, groupware clients are mostly "easy, end-user, corporate"
groupware servers are mostly "impossible, sysadmin, corporate, server"
But debtags should cope with this?
I can see an installer screen like the old tasksel menu, where I can say
to someone over the phone:
"Yes, now the installer should have brought up a long list of words with
tick-boxes by them. Select easy, desktop, internet, end-user, corporate
and OurLocalPackages. Now click [Install All Relevant]"
