The problem with plugins, not them all I may add, but you'll always get one 
(could be similar) that'll stop being supported after a period of time and 
you're now back to square one again, just take a look at the 'Top Level 
Categories' plugin, it was last updated in March of 2008 and is only 
compatible to WP 2.5! - We're almost ready to hit 3.0, a lot of thing have 
changed since then!
