I've previously tried to figure out whether it'd be possible to fake it
in this area, defining some classes SystemCategory, MessageCategory as
wrappers that know how to get at the information they need that is
stored elsewhere. I never managed to figure out a way of doing it
though. Would something like that be a worthwhile half-step on the way
toward having proper reified Categories and so on?
