Thank you for your ideas.
After some thought I think I'm gonna use slightly different approach. I'll 
just use widgets that have or have not get_contents() method which would 
return the contents of sub/parent category and just catch "no such attribute" 
exception in case i call it from file, not from directory. That way from the 
listwalker I can just call get_contents from the widget and update the whole 
list with new contents not having to explicitly check what kind of widget I 
have and having to call conditionally. It's not the prettiest solution but for 
now I think it'll have to suffice.
