Define the per-project category and difficulty at the template level,
instead of manually tagging the project pages.  While doing this, prefix
the tags with "category:" and "difficulty:" to make them easier to
understand.

Instead of including install scripts from the infrastructure into every binary package, just include the necessary information and split the scripts off into a separate package that is installed first (right after bootstrap, as soon as the first package needs it). This affects user creation, installation of tex packages, ...

Also add support for actions that happen once after a big upgrade session, instead of once per package (e.g. ls-lR rebuild for tex).
