Does this mean we can now finally have categorised watchlists? It's an
idea that people have generally been supportive of when I have
mentioned it on wiki but never gets any actual action. I'd program it
myself if I could. Put simply, imagine you are interested in both
football and politics: you can put articles in your football list or
your politics list and when you want to check your watchlist you can
choose just to check either the football or the politics one or both.

I see people complain that their watchlists are unmanageable every now
and again and this would help.
