usually tags are a better approach then hierachical trees because often
items belong in multiple categories.

and UI-wise, you can do very nice things with tags (toggle one or more
tags you want to see, or "all/current selection minus selected tags",
though it maybe a bit more complicated to find apps that would
otherwise be in the rootlevel.
