Also a lot of the necessary bloat in UTW could be trimmed off if the
functionality was built into the core.  I've written generic tagging
systems in under 40 lines of code, and UTW is at least a few thousand
lines of code.  That's not saying a WP tagging system would be so
light-weight, but it wouldn't need to be as big a project as UTW.  So
that might increase performance.
