I wouldn't try to be very radical (or anal) here. I wrote somewhere else  
(but don't remeber where) that cohese libraries - like Gem, Pdp, vasp, and  
maybe others - already close themselves from the outside world, so they  
should remain as a group, and the group inserted in the best main category  
above them. check the page now, actually I also joined both video/graphics  
categories, and put some subcategories in.
As for individual cases, they should be checked case to case. Gem has  
signal objects, but since it's goes is video, it should go to the video  

I think this doesn't affect cohese libraries that much, because it makes  
no sense to split them apart. but it will help with libraries that are  
just a group of lots of utilities for different categories - zexy, etc  
etc, also jmmmp, etc. For example, the IEM libs split themselves up at  
some point, now we have iem-gui, iem-matrix, ...
