I strongly agree that we should have classifiers for all the Python 
frameworks which have subcomponents.  For smaller things like JOTWeb, 
Wareweb, and maybe some of the others, we could potentially wait for 
something to appear first, or for someone to ask.  I think there's lots 
of pointless categories, so if there's a category that's actually 
useful, then that's great and we should add it.  I think the Cheese Shop 
can potentially be a registry for whatever... e.g., Environment :: 
TurboGears :: Widgets that would just contain widget extensions.  At 
least, if TurboGears wants that, or even moreso if it can use that 
category in some automated way (e.g., list all the public widget 
plugins) then the cheeseshop should accomodate that.

I also agree it should be flatish, i.e., Zope2/Zope3/ZopeFive can all 
just be separate, as could Plone for instance.  I actually had thought 
"Framework :: Zope2" would be good, and kind of marks it as something 
particular to cheeseshop (and thus to Python).  "Topic :: Internet :: 
WWW/HTTP" is the antithesis of good categorization IMHO ;)
