Never heard of ACR. I guess it's simpler than old good Autoconf.

I can tell you how I would like it:
I don't actually care about how the categories will look like in the
main screen (showing just one per task, or all of them in a new panel,
are equally fine for me).

What I would actually like is being able to filter per category. That
is, to get *only* the tasks in a given category (#work, #home,
#delegated, or whatever). Such a feature could be quite useful.
