[Logarion] [Dev] Topic graphs coming up

I've added contexting to topics. The prototype syntax is:
topic > topic
Multiple levels are also allowed:
topic > topic > topic > ..
Topics: technology > computing > ocaml, personal > projects > computing
An article with the above topics tells the reader that the text is about OCaml as a computer technology subtopic, but also personal log of computing projects.
Why topic graphs?
It aids exploration and filtering.
A reader can subscribe on all my texts on "technology" topics, or "technology > computing" to get only that subset and so on.
Also a reader browsing the website can navigate directly to topics of interest as Logarion now produces a graph of all topics from the texts in the archive.
Say I had another text with "personal > cooking". The graph with the two texts would be:
technology --> computing --> ocaml
personal +-> projects --+
This exploration value will shine when Logarion can federate and the number of topics grows beyond what a personal archive would normally contain.
Any thoughts or ideas welcome :)
