With the current version, if you want to change the
hierarchy of categories, e.g. for creating a new
supercategory for existing subcategories, you basically
have to create the entire new structure and then change
all the entries to point to the new categories.

It would be SO useful, if rearranging categories
through a simpe drag & drop operation was possible.

    I agree. There are two steps to this. First the datastore API must have a method for re-parenting an object. Then the feature can be implemented in the UI.

    This feature has now been implemented. From within the navigation view, you can drag an account or a category and drop it on the new parent, or drop it on the root account/category node. You can also selection multiple accounts and drag them. This feature is undoable using the undo/redo feature.
