I've been toying around with some ideas for categories. I had a look
at MS Outlook, but I didn't really like the way they do it (basically,
you just get a list with categories, with checkboxes on the left).

I've decided at least we need pixmaps. Pixmaps are not only nice to
see, but also provide a way to show, say, 5 categories in the todo
list (using GNOME foot-menu size pixmaps), with their textual form as
a tooltip. Also, I've decided to use a box with to lists for
'available' and 'selected' categories, and some arrows to move a
category from one list to the other.
