[wp-hackers] Status of sitewide categories/terms in WP3

Hi all,

I'm on the verge of finishing a plugin (bbAggregate) which allows you to 
aggregate posts from different blogs in the same WP3 install to be 
aggregated based on sitewide categories.

According to this http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12666 this 
functionality has some issues, but it is not clear what these issues 
are. I have used the same functionality in WordPress MU for multiple 
clients with success and would like to be able to use it in future WP 
releases as well since my clients depend on it.

My questions are:

1) What are the future plans for sitewide categories and?
2) What needs to be done to keep the functionality? Regardless of it 
being part of the core.
3) What are the the remaining issues preventing this from working stable?

I can't find more info other than "the sky will fall on your head" with 
regards to the issues and the info in 
http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/12666 is not helping (yet).

Any help or pointers on more information much appreciated!


met vriendelijke groet,
Bjorn Wijers
