Sorting out the snippets

I feel that the snippets section can be a particularly useful resource for perl programmers. I have referred to it myself a few times.

However, the way it is structured now, it is quite difficult to find the algorithm that one is looking for. So I thought that the best solution would be to set up a system similar to that of the Q&A section. A group of monks would be set up like the QandAEditors to go through a list of uncategorized snippets listed in a form similar to the Uncategorized Questions page and assign sections to the snippets.

As for the sections themselves, they cannot be like the Code Catacombs sections because those are for programs and these aren't full programs (Duh). Sections would have to be something like I/O or List Processing, etc. I guess people can reply to this with their own suggestions for sections.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    This is a very good idea, as there are all kinds of snippets for just about everything, and putting things in order would make things a lot easier on everyone. I would gladly volunteer to be an editor for this section.
