I ran into this the other day, which is kind of funny. It sure would
be nice to have the ability to exclude multiple categories, and if
MySQL has dropped support for 4.0, I agree it might be better to go
that route as well.

Not that I know anything about any of this, but I thought it was funny
that I just ran into this problem of not being to exclude multiple
categories a few days ago.
