I realise this. It pretty much has to be in the design from the ground-up.

Interesting. I've already played with routing a bit to give me more 
control over the locations of the static pages. 
("/pages/portfolio_index/" is accessible from "/portfolio/", and 
"/pages/porfolio_job1/" from "/portfolio/job1/")

It would be easy enough to categorize categories... tack an extra field 
"type" on there, and then have an alternative sidebar widget that can 
exclude categories of a particular type. I'll experiment with this 
implementation, thanks...
