[gfsd] has an assumed precondition bug

User-agent: Mutt/1.3.28i assumes that the category_id number 1 is the very top
category.  It's easy to test.  Try to give a different category in the
database the number 1.  The front page at, with no
args, becomes whatever category number 1 is.

This assumption should be removed.  It cannot be guaranteed that the
toplevel category has ID "1".  You can assume that its parent_id is
NULL.  I suppose we can assume there is only one toplevel category, but
that seems dangerous too...
