corrct me if I'm wrong but AFAIK the categories are anyway not available
any more -- they are being replaced by tags. This creates additional
problems: a category usually contained n entries (so called 1:n
relationship) whereas multiple tags can contain the same image (e.g.
animal and cat), which is a n:m relationship.

Or use the API in a way I so far did not figure out. Or directly access
ccHost internal structures e.g. via mysql which would agreedly be a very
crude hack.
