Do you know where the metadata will be that defines what's in each module?

Can't we just pass this down to the lower levels? I'm not against
adding API, but I'd really like to re-use as much stuff as we can. At
the moment PK only understands:

* sources
* packages
* groups (i.e. a flat group)
* categories (i.e. a hierarchical tree)

I think the module would be best defined as a set of categories. Ideas welcome.
