Hm... The problem still isn't solved. We wanted to be able to detect when
the categories or comments are being pulled for a plugin, rather than
being rendered for the user. For example, Akismet comments are being
modified by my plugin when they shouldn't be. Can anyone suggest a way to
detect whether a call to wp_list_categories is for user or not? Should I
deconstruct the stack?
