I mean you could specify a list of categories (we probably wouldn't do
hierarchical categories in this case, it would get way too complex); in
my case, it would probably be something like Gnome, Lisp, Python, News,
Friends. Then for each feed, you could specify any number of categories;
CLiki Recent Changes would be in the Lisp category, Python Owns Us in
Python and Friends. Then when you selected a category to read, you would
get a list of all the feeds in that category. There would probably be
two categories always, All and Uncategorized.

I'm sort of attracted to this idea, but it is possible that in the end
the plain old category hierarchy is simpler. I'm not sure.
