 I'm calling it a night, but '''001''' is what I have so far.  It adds and
 removes the items (adding categories if necessary), but it is interfering
 with the normal checkbox tree.  It seems that the first onclick
 ajaxAdder() event to run "steals" the data, leaving it blank for the
 second one.

 Skeltoac or mdawaffe probably can save me some head-bashing here.

 Ideally, I'd like no disruption of the tree structure, although that may
 not be possible with the current code.  I'd like it to just check the box.
 Eventually, I'd like it to be able to add parent and child in one submit
 and have it integrate into the current tree.  Hey, a boy can dream.

 I'm not sure if the ajax-adding should actually do the post2cat stuff...
 not sure how that'd integrate with the autosave and drafts and all that.

 Ideally, the tree and the quick cats should be linked, so that
 adding/checking on either adds/checks on the other, and same for deletion.
 That may be tricky.  My fallback would be to forget about updating the
 tree at all and just update the quickcats list.  It could just insert
 hidden inputs and we can sort it all out with PHP on the other side.

 Let me know if you have any thoughts.
