Why don't you commit to the branch? I'd very much like to see it

I can give it a try.

Another approach: portlets would have 'category attributes' in the registry.
When searching, you would check the attributes for a match, like <meta>tags

Im also thinking of a 'portlet lookup' page.
The lookup page would display a table of all available templates

+ Portlet   |  Description   |  Categories

The user could sort and filter the list by criteria such as the category.
When a portlet is selected, the user would be returned to the customizer
and the portlet would be placed on the page.
