I agree. I think we should allow for Development/Libraries/[LANGUAGE]
- Groups are used to make browsing packages simpler
- People browsing Development/Libraries are programmers
- Programmers are typically looking for language specific libraries
So, my proposal it to let packagers extend Development/Libraries with
a /[LANGUAGE] (Perl, Python, Java, C++, Lisp, etc, but not C, which can
default to Development/Libraries).
