That would work if the categories were relatively stable, but not if you
create new ones on the fly all the time.


I also use a text editor where I maintain a task tree and I also have
always been frustrated, first by my Palm and then by Evo, not to be able
to make task trees of arbitrary depth. I once had a Palm program that
was capable of doing that, but synchronization required a Windows
program. Having a one level tasks list is in my opinion what keeps the
task list from being usable as dynamically as the text editor. When I
write down tasks as I think about them, I can't organize them without
being able to maintain dependancies. A real task tree is what would
enable dependancy relationships to be represented.

I couldn't agree more. The Tasks list seems to me to be underpowered in
comparison to the other Evolution components.
