Bug Description

Because we have a bunch of ebooks/magazines now it does make sense to add a additional toplevel "department" called "Books & Magazines". It should have the "X-Publication" category.

On a releated note, mpt does not really like the "department" naming as we are not really using a department-store metaphor anymore. So maybe "category" is a better fitting name afterall? And we simply add it to the current list of Cateogries and make the client adapt to it.

I added the "Books & Magazines" top level now to software-center client and it will look for "X-Publication" in the categories.
