Let's create a 2.2 branch and start removing the current tagging

as an easy, tested, and already-popular feature that will sex up the 

I think trunk should start experimenting with the new taxonomy proposal 
on the list, which has the potential to do some really neat things, but 
I think it's also going to introduce a lot of complexity and need 
testing beyond the window for 2.2. Pushing it to 2.3 will allow it more 
breathing room and for us not to rush a pretty critical building block 
of WP going forward.
