It's the difference between https://addons.mozilla.org and a simple list 
of items.

Here's my current issue: i want lots and lots of tags <-> plugin 
relationships to start building the relationship matching engine for the 
directory. The readme.txt type thing I pointed to has a parsable, 
semi-standard way of showing that. How else would I get this info, ask 
dozens of plugin authors to make me an xml file with a <tags> element?
