Subject Re: Patch submitted for bug # 17839 - Category Filtering Enhancement

I tried it with the top of the CVS head, and it is a nice feature. 
Especially in the case where you have alot of portlets. You do need to 
modify your category group names to be like "base.sub.subsomemore" in 
your xreg to see the real benefit.
