Well, with sub-categories you'll get a huge list every time you ask for
a sub-category list, right?

Just create a whole new archive and give it the name of your project.
The whole archive is now your 'category' for that project. Now all the
categories you make within that will be your 'sub-categories'. So you
can have a 'lang' category, etc., and it won't mingle with categories
from any other project.

Be well,
