In addition to that, so categories wouldn't go that deep and may only have 1
or 2 sub-categories underneath them while other may have 4 or 5 (sub)
sub-categories. I realise that making the products so deep in the system is
not ideal, but that is what searching is for.
The docs say that we can set up a large amount of sub-categories, just
like making sub-directories on a hard drive.
What I am looking for, and I believe that Marcelo is, too (as well as
some others) is...

The user wants to buy a hammer, so he clicks on hammers.
Now, he needs some more choices:
He clicks on Sledge Hammers
Now, we've got:
We can further refine this to manufacturers:
Black and Decker
And, now he is presented with a page of a half dozen 20# sledge hammers
made by Stanley from which he can make a selection.
But, if at the top, when he clicked on 'hammers' it would bring up
nearly 200 entries and he would feel swamped.
