I think a TODO is simply a TODO, nothing you can categorize easily. If
you want a category, I'd call it an "Annotation", the right place
might be an "Annotations" view or something like that.

Most of the parser-problems in the problem reporter are not real
problems, but rather just problems of the parser. I think a TODO is
more important than that. ;-)

Anyway for the moment, the problem-reporter might be ok as place for
the problems, it just has to be implemented efficiently.
