Add folder hierarchies to Group Documents plugin
A request from a member:
"It'd be great to be able to create folders for different documents archived on the site so that different committees can have their own folders, with internal hierarchies of folders, rather like one gets when saving a doc on a computer. Can you guys change the docs section so that this is possible. The temporal archiving isn't all that useful for archiving a lot of different documents."
This is actually the second request we've had for this functionality; I think it's particularly important for what I'd call "power groups," and those are the kinds of groups we want to be sure to support. I realize that this will take some real coding and UX work but I think it's worth it; how hard would it be to implement something like this?

It'll be a pretty big job, and will probably push back 1.1 by at least a week or two. There's a lot to worry about in terms of UI and backward compatibility.
Is there a reason why the existing Category functionality won't work for your purposes?

In https://github.com/castiron/cac/commit/69491f5e93787b9c6e76a403b987cf1e1a46b450 and some related commits, I have overhauled the Files categories UI to look folderish. Please pull the latest master and have a look.

Finally got Git reinstalled and had a chance to look at this. Nice work! I think we should move forward with it. Then we'll see whether this is enough to satisfy those calling for this functionality. Many thanks for your work on this.
