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.
