The current implementation is as follows:
- first word: command family (raster/vector/imagery/...)
- second word: topic
- third and more word: keywords

Exactly. That's why I would like to simply add the words "topic:" and
"keyword:" in front of the respective words. An example:


raster, landscape structure analysis, diversity index


raster, topic: landscape structure analysis, keywords: diversity index

(ok here is only one keyword which is not enough but anyway)

Like this we have a clear distinction.
I'd like to keep the topic page as it makes more sense as only keeping
the links to the keyword page.

Just the man/build_keywords.py script needs a tweak to filter out the
words "topic:" and "keyword:" while processing the list. Will be some
simple split() change...
