30. Trove-Like Categories
Add Freshmeat.net or SourceForge-like trove categories with topics
programming languages, etc. As opposed to keywords/labels/tags they are a
nested tree, and will also be limited to a given list. This will help in
being able to better browse CPAN instead of the old and heavily
under-maintained long modules list. For example "Programming Language ::
Lisp", "Intended Audience :: Emacs Users", "Operating System :: GNU",
"Topic :: Editors".

* Freshmeat no longer has Trove categories, they were replaced by tags.
