Please add few extra keywords for components:

LANGUAGE_IS (optional but required to replace mod custom code) - defined as two letters (EN/PT/PO) or four xx_XX IETF language tag (followup EE) in order to mark components as language-dependent and in order to export this extra-logic data from components code into JSON.
CATEGORY (optional) - one entry from pre-defined list, it might look's like BWS but I removed disquisition between BG1/SoD/BG2 content

Quote

Core Rules Modification
Quests
Spells

NPC-Related
Artificial Intelligence

Other

TAGS (optional) - comma separated list of tags, only letters and numbers, if the component has extra functions/content, tags can provide such info
IMAGE (optional) - direct link to jpg, png or GIFV, disallow obsolete formats like bmp,gif

Examples:

One more keyword: GLOBAL_INSTALL_ORDER/GLOBAL_INSTALL_SEQUENCE discussed here: http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,29663.msg338674.html#msg338674

EDIT: We need to re-think GLOBAL_INSTALL_ORDER/GLOBAL_INSTALL_SEQUENCE topic before it can be added as keyword.


INSTALL_ORDER/INSTALL_SEQUENCE won't work - http://forums.pocketplane.net/index.php/topic,29681.new.html

I'm not crazy about the concept (possibly for obstinate reasons), but if it does happen, it won't include another way of referring to languages. It would use language strings that would be matched against the language name given in the LANGUAGE statement.
