[wp-hackers] Clarification on Tagging Plugins

Back when I was still using UTW and trunk broke it, I was able to continue
using it for a bit by renaming the functions (thank you sed!) and nothing
else.. I don't think anything has changed that would require anything more
than that ATM, UTW could theoretically go on using the old taxonomy tables
and let things be.

But do you *want* to do that? Basically, you're telling people "you don't
need to use the WP taxonomy tables, use this special veriosn of UTW instead"
but then what happens when they want some functionality or the other that
requires compatibility with the wp default taxanomy layout? Wasn't part of
the whole reason of bringing tagging to the core so that we could
standardize it somewhat?
