[wp-hackers] Category Operation (Adjacency vs. Modified Preorder)

I'm not sure that I see the sense in using modified preorder for WP
It seems that the only thing we gain is the ability to count the number
of children any given node has. However, it becomes significantly more
difficult to loop through, say, the top level categories.
It's quite probable that I just haven't completely wrapped by head
around the modified preorder, but it seems like it causes more problems
that it solves. For example, there's the whole easy corruptibility, but
it also complicates any attempts to change the order categories are
sorted in and stuff like that.
Like I said, I probably just still miss the inner beauty of the modified
preorder, but it seems like we'd be better off sticking to the adjacent
