As Flavio Curella points out, it seems like the high-level syndication framework ought to support categories (i.e., tags). He suggests offering three ways of doing it, but that seems like overkill, because if we support an "item_categories" method that works like the "item_pubdate" method, then simpler schemes are easy to implement too. Patch included, and as bonus it's only one line long! :-) I'll buy that for a dollar.

Also, this has some overlap with #1028, but my way is better because IMHO templates don't usually work well with XML. That's because in cases like RSS, XML isn't really being used as a markup language, but rather as merely a quasi-human-readable data format, so we should generate it programmatically.
