I've got a meta box using custom fields to replace the default WordPress
taxonomy meta boxes and I was wondering what would be the best function or
code snippet to disassociate a post from term(s)? Right now when the post
is saved or updated I'm checking to see if the term field for a particular
taxonomy has been posted and if not I'm doing the following:

wp_set_post_terms( $post_id, '', 'my_custom_taxonomy' );
