It _should_ work, but might not.  Note that {$Group} will always
end up receiving the group name of the template page itself.

In the markup, you can do:

    %comment% [[!CategoryName]]

If you want to configure the wiki so that categories _never_ appear
in the output, then setting $LinkCategoryFmt to ' ' or '' sounds
