[KPhotoAlbum] Super categories makeover

Hi Tobias,

I like the clean look of the tree representation, but I fear that having the 
categories inside the tree will confuse users (e.g. "why can't I make Places a 
subcategory of Keywords?"). Having a stronger visual distinction in the final 
version would be great.

Do you want the category-tree widget to replace the others on the subcategory 
page, or do you intend to keep them side-by-side? In the latter case, we would 
need to sync the views somehow.

I don't see why it shouldn't work this way. Maybe it would be good to combine 
the drop-down category selector with the tree-view - this way you have 
something better than "1" to display as a column title in the tree view 
widget, and you don't have the issues I described above in the initial 
paragraph.

Sure. Go for it!

Cheers,
  Johannes
