Looks good to me.
We might need some other and additional categories (e.g. recipes-opie).
I can also imagine images and tasks becoming a separate group.
What would be nice is if there is a mechanism or description what
subtrees require what, so it becomes easier to set up a BBPATH that
e.g. leaves out the qt recipes if you are not interested in those.
Guess ideally the relations between the subtrees should be a directed
graph (without cycles). Not fully sure if this is feasible though.
