A widget is not a (standalone) editor - so the editor category sounds
wrong. X11 actually sounds fine to me.

Sound not like a window manager, so wm would be wrong IMHO.
But now to the real point: every damn stupid move will be a major pain
for people upgrading later.
We have no (semi-)automatic way to track this kind of changes (like
FreeBSD ports seem to have).
I guess you pkgsrc people do install every pkg from scratch on a regular
basis - we ordinary users don't. Please keep this in mind (or fix the above
and enhance pkg_chk to automatically deal with moves.)
