Categories serve several purposes.  They replace the directory-type
grouping that we did in MoinMoin.

So right now we try to group all SOPs like this:
And to extract that information, we have to link to the
Special:PrefixIndex page like this:
which takes the user to a search page that finds those SOPs.

Categories in MoinMoin are more flexible than PrefixIndex.  With
categories, we can look at the Infrastructure SOPs directly by going to:
This is a page that we can add our own content to (unlike the
Special:PrefixIndex page) so we can use it as an end user visible page
if we want.  (Category:Infrastructure_SOPs is this way.  Category:SOPs
currently is not so pretty).

We can also have multiple categories per page.  For instance:
appears both on Category:Release_Engineering and Category:Localization

We can also have hierarchical categories.  Infrastructure SOPs and
Release Engineering SOPs are both subcategories of:
Currently we have to browse the tree of categories to see all the
subcategory page but category flattening plugins exist.
