Humanly speaking, what are sections used for, currently? I know that the
frontpage in packages.d.o uses them, but what an user thinks about the
section concept?

We especially have a problem with “multiple sections” packages. I talked
with Sune on this, and for Xfce (if there was an Xfce section) I
couldn't say which packages would be in there and which ones wouldn't.

I guess that problem (and maybe one solution) leads to tags?
