another +1 from me,
Once its released, theres going to be a lot of new plugins centered around  
it, It seems tag support has come late in the dev. cycle, i was supprised  
to see more tagging patches coming in after the version was bumped(to  
I think its in the interest both of future WP development, and for the  
Plugin authors to get the tagging support done well in a flexible manner,  
if that means breaking up the category table into 3 seperate tables, then  
so be it.. But it needs to be done well first, it'll be harder to change  
it down the line.
