You know, that's not a bad way of going about it. Truth be told, I
had sort of forgotten sets exists because they're a bit cumbersome at
the moment. But it's cheap and dead simple and gets us our 90%
immediately. Actually, it gets 100%, even, if you can include a set
as part of another set (implication) and symlinks function as aliases.
Very clever; I like it.

Don't even need the "-tag" part, really. But yes, a couple hundred
sets are in order. And some tool-glue.

That's not a disadvantage at all. Thank you for noticing the third path.
While I still don't really believe categories to be necessary, this
will be a fine intermediate step.
