Ok, I've done this. Not with all languages yet. Because if we change the 
language system, it makes no sense to create a lot of new language 
specific parent categories.

So now "Guides" is a category holder, it has the 4 "intended audience" 
categories, please do not assign articles directly to Guides.

A total of 160 category reassign changes :-) resulted in killing the 
"Documentation" category too. Including all language versions. (Again: 
where language version did not exist for the destination category, 
articles have been moved to English destination category.)

The category "tree" is "broken" for language versions, I assign to 
parent category only where no new category is needed (because we will 
probably trash all those soon). (E.g. Guides/de is not assigned to 
Categories/de similar to Guides(/en) in Categories(/en) because 
Categories/de is missing yet.

(I moved the emptied categories to Speedy Deletion, someone please take 
a look before people starts adding content again. :-) ) (All languages 
of Documentation, Information and Openmoko categories.)
