I'd leave chemistry programs in the chemistry category. Same with 
biology, astronomy and mathematics. The new category fits well for 
things like graphviz and opendx.

By the way, I don't know if I mentioned this but I took a course in 
Advanced R Programming the week before last. I am toying with the idea 
of trying to put together an ebuild schema/eclass for R packages, 
similar to what Dirk Eddelbuettel has done with Quantian for the Debian 
distro. Who's the current R guru amongst the developers? I can share 
notes if you're interested.
