Which could be fixed by (modify-category-entry ?’ ?l).

I would suggest this additional docstring patch, because I was confused
at first as to what CATEGORY was supposed to be (I looked around a bit
for how to create some kind of "category object"):

diff --git i/src/category.c w/src/category.c
index 4397f66..31ac2ec 100644

Right, but I think this bug is about the user modifying stuff.
