I'm not sure what is right. Most people won't actually install the game
to play it, because they would be alone and it's a multiplayer game.
Someone willing to run a server is going to install the game on a remote
machine and then invite friends over to play. Or even propose it to the
general public. Most probably this person will also tweak the game to
fit into a larger web site, embeding the game in a div and / or making
use of the pythhon web service with a completly different client.

I thought python-cardstories made sense because it is going to be
installed by people who will most likely use it as a toolkit.
But I also acknowledge that it's a web component and it could be in
Section: web. I think putting it in Section: games would mislead people
into thinking they can play it standalone. This is also why I did not
try to add it as a link in the desktop menus.

I very much appreciate the time you spent on trying to figure this out :-)
