Last summer Kieran and I took a stab at a card-sort for categorizing
modules.  I'm not sure where this left off, but it might be
worthwhile to revive as a means to create the categories and/or
sort the modules into them.

     I agree that it would be nice to allow freetagging as well as a
more structured categorization, and to allow modules to be
placed into multiple categories.
