I just pulled up a client project site running 2.8.3. If you look at  
the file
wp-admin/edit-category-form.php line 79

you should see the line

	do_action('edit_category_form_fields', $category);

I would call this a 'hook' that allows you to add extra fields like an  
image upload field or something else. Or corse then you would also  
need to find the hook for when the category is saved which would need  
to write your field somewhere.

Seems simple enough unless I've misunderstood your request.
