Confusion here. I see no Category in Safe-0.1.cabal.

Might be better to allow users (an administrative subset, maybe?) to
edit the categories attached to each package. So, they're inferred
when uploaded for the frist time, but after that are user maintained.
For example, should Web be a separate Category from Network. If so,
shouldn't HTTP also be present under Web? And so on...
