Collapsing categories for easy adding of (child) categories

    There are a lot of plugins for collapsing categories on websites when one has a lot of categories, but nothing in the back end. I think it should be possible to have a kind of 'collapse' way of showing and hiding the (sub/sub)categories of parent categories when writing a post. I have a lot of (sub-sub)categories and it's impossible to scroll through that tiny window to find the right child category I want to choose. In my case I have about a hundred parent categories with each 10 times 10 child cats. Writing a post is easy, picking the right cat is terrible ;)

    I'm now being confronted with the practical side of what I mentioned above, and I'd like to emphasize that it is really virtually impossible to choose a sub-sub-category in the website I just made for a cliƫnt. I almost hesitate to show it to him... About two thousand categories under just 20 to 30 top level categories. Can you imagine the pain to scroll and find that one child category? :(
