Yes, but the difference is when you define what you want to see. Do you
a) decide when putting things into the basked which are the ones that
you are probably going to look at at the same time or b) decide when
pulling them for viewing which were the ones of relevance at a given
time. Granted that since our database only has categories and no
relations between them there is not much difference, but the difference
is there.
