Import categories from file (not plugin)

Import categories from file (not plugin)
The multi-category import plugin accepts parent categories as text - the actual name of the category - but I'd like to be able to import categories regularly into the categories table, probably from a script, but minimum from sqlman so I can import more fields than the plugin allows.

... but in the table, parentID is numeric.

Is the plugin querying the categories table line by line to find the numeric ID od the parent cat - or am I missing an easier way to do this?
