I actually did a search for your recipe just a few minutes ago! I wanted
to see if I was stepping on any toes/how I could make the two work together.
I was thinking that if a user set $EditMoreTagsPlacement = "Mcat" that
it would make the whole <div> of categories display:none. That way,
MediaCat can grab them. Can you think of something better?
The other thing is, to account for needs like Dave's, I'm going to make
a page directive optional for placement of the div. I can't seem to
think of a way to allow MediaCat to fancy it up in a different position
though. Any ideas?
Lastly, I'm wondering if it would be better if you or I just updated the
MediaCat code instead of me putting adding it to EditMore.
Let me know! (Right now, it's time for dinner.)
