There are different distributions of Connectors. For instance, Squeakland has
different needs than the "full" release of Connectors. Further, there are
some packages that are useful alone, like FSM and BroomMorph.
Plus, when I work on something, I like to limit the scope of my changes. If I
had not done this, I would have more than the mere 263 or so versions of the
Connectors package itself that I do have.

This seems to me like another kind of thing that one should be able to do with
a tool -- to define and manage your own categories.
You might consider another package (that I supposedly maintain but haven't
necessarily updated for 3.7 yet) that allows you to do just this:
