I want this pony: To help make the AskMe archive a little more mineable and thereby cut down on repeat questions, might we include either arbitrary keywords, selected by the questioner, to flag the question, or more simply a choice of categories to apply to the question (as we have in MeTa)?

This is also an opportunity to continue five fresh fish's thread which got derailed in the lamest way possible. In addition to labeling questions, a "Hall of Fame" of particularly good answers similar to the sidebar on MeFi might be good.

I think categories would be a great idea.

More here, for instance ... (so maybe need a way to make Metatalk more mineable too and thereby cut down on repeat questions ... or maybe this needs to be asked again ...)
