I'd leave the _devel packages in the same category as the main
package, because they are then more easily found when you already
located the main package. People not interested in _devels have the
menu "Show development packages" disabled anyway.

WRT libraries, I'm not sure. They do blow up the Development category
quite a bit...
It didn't occur to me that some packages just don't get categorized.
But I see the sense now for libraries. Filtering for "Development" a
user might only want to see what development related apps are
available. If he needs a specific libarary, he'll search for it

Maybe 'Business and Productivity'. Doing accounting or, yuck, taxes
isn't very productive...


Did you know:
  If half the Haiku supporters at http://www.goodsearch.com
  made 10 searches a day, we could have two fulltime devs.
