Right. I would suggest that we convert the weight field into two
(mutually exclusive) labels:

 * P::High would be category (1)
 * P::Low would be category (2)
 * No P::* label would imply categoy (3)

Does this sound reasonable to everyone? I could cobble together a script
to make this change in about 10 minutes if so.
