On 13-Jul-98 Charles M. Hannum spoke unto us all:
# * There is no distinction between `GUI libraries' and `X
# applications' (whereas tty-based display libraries go in `devel').
I would really like to add a number of categories.. things like:
xlibs, netapps, etc etc come to mind.
# * There are applications stuck in the x11 directory simply because
# they use X. E.g., x3270 really ought to be in `net', or something
# like a `mainframe support' category.
If we are going to have an x11 category, then everything that has an x11
dependency should be in there. Otherwise we either need to sub-categorize x11
(net,games,blah blah) or break everything out and get rid of x11 almost
