I've just started using GWCode Categories for the first time, and have seen it oft-cited as a go-to solution here.

I see that there are variables to check for "has children" and I could compare cat_url_title to my segment vars to get the "here" status, but I don't see a way to get those onto the <li>.

Are those sorts of classes supported on the <li> and I'm missing something? Or is there a way to get nested output and write my own <li> tags?
