If there is going to be a rearrangement of packages I would be in favor of removing CATEGORY as it happens to be imperfect and go for: $FIRSTCHARACTER/$SECONDCHARACTER/$PACKAGE This way antlr would be in: a/n/antlr and flex in f/l/flex. I expect that most people rather use some grep(1) or pkgsrc.se-like website to search packages of a matching category (text in DESCR or COMMENT). Any other movement from my experience makes things more messy - a lot of work for developers, confusion for users. I already saw both groups of people frustrated in a Linux distro (Mageia).
