Just as long as the Trunk keeps in the tags, and will move forward with 
the new taxonomy proposal. It sounds good to me. ;) :)

/I just don't want to flush all those man hours of trying to adjust 800+ 
tags from UTW to WP tags down the commode! And that's not even ALL of my 
posts, that's just some of them. LOL!

- Create 2.2 branch, strip tags out. Test test test!! Release around 
April 30th, or May 7th.

- Bump Trunk to 2.3-developer-edition. (Ha! There's a nice name for it! 
:P Haha.) Keep tags, do taxonomy proposal (database rearrangements). 
Maybe add in *cough* better draft management system, revamped blogroll, 
permalink adjustment/deal, and whatever else?

Is that about right? :P
