noted, though I respectfully disagree that tags and categories are
"pretty much the same". The fact that we feel the need for a different
interface to deal with them, and that they result from a different
process and intention, makes them different things in the end. I think
it's a shame they're reduced to one another in so many contexts. But
anyway, not sure this is the right place to discuss this.

Still interested in ideas for my "other-language-excerpt" :-)
