Oh my... I just want to wait for WP to allow custom taxonomies, and
then send you back this message...
Sorry for the pun, but since links (like in wp_links) are the closest
existing thing to a custom taxonomy,
[and btw, who decided that links categories could not be hierarchical,
and - to get closer to the point - who decided that a link may not be
displayed as a single entity on a single page ?? to achieve this
simple functionality, WP need dozens of hooks and hundreds of php code
lines... ]
and since custom taxonomies are in the scope for 2.8/2.9, I think
you'll be wrong in no time.
