as the Ports Collection continue to grow, we have decided to
do some changes to the category layout. The www category, second
largest with over 2000 individual ports, will have three subcategories
spinned out. On the other side, x11-servers category, with only
10 ports, will be folded into regular x11 category.

Attached is a proposed list of ports being moved from the www category.
Please review, discuss and report ommissions and mistakes. The general
key to the new categories is as follows:

www-clients - browsers, rss clients, wget-alike, webapi/soap clients,
www-servers - http servers, proxy servers, everything related to apache
www-webapps - web apps, frameworks, libraries
www (rest, not moved) - html editors, authoring tools, search engines ..
