[wp-hackers] Grab a seat. On Delaying 2.2, separating tables

That sounds awesome to me :)

I've been worrying about my site, I run it from the trunk at all times
(scary, I know) - and just yesterday I deleted UTW from it and switched to
WP22's tags instead. This method would minimize risk and be good all around.
