[wp-hackers] Request for additional $before and $after parameters to wp_list_cats()

If you want the same functionality without having to hack the source,
you can use regular expressions to post-process the output functions
wp_list_cats. It's ugly as heck, but I have a couple spots in my
template where I use output-buffer functions to scoop up the output,
and crunch it.

If you'd like more details about this, send me an off-list message and
I'll dig up a little example code for you.
