I had it like that in an earlier iteration, but how do plugins avoid
battling for new taxonomy ints?  A string provides less chance of
collision.  An int would be better for a join, however, so maybe we
should go ahead and add a taxonomy table that will act as a broker for
plugins to get a taxonomy id.
