[wp-hackers] Keywords to tags

WP's Movable Type importer currently ignore the Keywords field in MT  
export files, which is unfortunate when you want to convert a client  
who's been on MT for years and wants to switch, but isn't willing to  
lose their tagging system.

I've modified wp-admin/import/mt.php to successfully convert MT  
keywords to WordPress postmeta  as a "keywords" field (UTW then does  
a good job of converting these fields to tags).

Is there enough demand out there for something like this that I  
should consider submitting a patch? If there's no chance of it being  
accepted, I'll just post the patch in some forums.
