For Lenny, we just removed the `[Biology]' tag that was heading the

`[Biology]' tag come return by the backdoor.
I would try to use common sense where to put biological or genetic
or whatever into short description and there should be no principle
to avoid certain words.
The more we signal to non-biologists that the package is not for them,
the less we can tell biologists what it does. Couldn't we rely on
Debtags to indicate the field of the package to our users?
Debtags is fine but we have to many package interfaces that do not
know about Debtags and thus we can not rely on this.
