It might be more interesting to use a list of tags instead of a single  
category. You'd then be able to filter the list to a subset of bundles  
using task-specific criteria. For example, you could enable all  
bundles tagged with "Ruby on Rails" (Ruby, Rails, HTML), or all  
bundles tagged with "Unix" (terminal, shell script, makefiles,...), or  
"Coding Mac Applications" (Xcode, AppleScript, ObjC, C, C++,...).
