If we make it folderish, it will clash if it's included as a base class
of a folderish tool. You'd see both the categories and the normal
subobjects of the tool.
Note that it may be possible to reuse the "opaque" subitems notion I
introduced in CMFCatalogAware (for talkbacks) but usually I guess tools
are not catalog aware...
