Perhaps the system could be more generalized, so that anyone can create
any hierarchy of keywords. This would fit better with GNUnet's flexible
and decentralized nature. The GNUnet website could then publish a
"standard" hierarchy of keywords (so we don't all create out own
different hierarchies for the same thing) and future versions of
libextractor could be made to obey this standard.

While we're on the topic, is the GNUnet community still adverse to
optionally case-insensitive keywords? While anyone who deperately wants
to do a case-insensitive search can configure his node to search for all
the possible permutations of a keyword (e.g. GPL, gPL, gpL, etc.) I
think this would be far more efficient if implememnted on the side of
the receiving node (and thus as part of the AFS protocol).

Mind you, I'm not saying that ALL searches should be case-insensitive,
just that the user should have an option of requesting a
case-insensitive search from compatible nodes.
