I seem to recall that Category links being removed from PmWiki pages
when Pm reviews changes for incorporation into distributions (because of
the overhead, I believe). If so, then it seems that Cookbook pages
might be the only area in PmWiki.org where categories are really
embraced (assuming that the use of categories on test and other pages
are not intended to be retained).
