There is a keywords field. This would work okay if there was better
abilities to query and browse that field. I don't remember how it is
stored in the database.
But anyway, assuming we are doing that, how should we open up
participation? The lack of a representative database dump makes it hard
for other people to work on it on their local machines. And of course
Subversion access for some people.
