For display purposes in a listing that will be presented to users in
the GUI, it would make more sense to me to present three separate bioc
repository listings:
 Bioc software
 Bioc annotation
 Bioc experiment

The annotation repository contains 636 packages (!)
The experiment data repository is small, but expected to grow to the
100's of packages in the near future.
