Agreed.  Trac itself is a framework; users of the framework can look
for plugins using the framework classifier.  There's no need to create
a classifier for the framework alone.

(Now, it's fine to classify the framework as Framework::Trac, but the
plugins should be in the same classification.  That way a user finds
both plugins and updates all together, which makes a lot of sense to
