django-taxonomy is an app that is completely self-contained, following 
the 'loosely-coupled' mantra that most of the Django community puts forth. 

With this app installed, you not only create categories, you create the whole 
notion of categories in your application, *then* create categories. If your 
app evolves and needs tags later, don't install a "tags" app, just create the 
notion of "tags" right there on the spot using django-taxonomy! Wanna create
labels? What are those?! I don't know, but if it's a way to classify
information in your app, I hope django-taxonomy can handle it. 

To see some background on why/how this was created, please see this blog post,
which discusses it in gory detail.
