Fixed, will be committed to CVS later tonight. Good catch on both of these,
by the way. I didn't see these!

There doesn't appear to be an easy way to do this, except for the free-tag
vocabularies. Incidentally, I have successfully tested that you *can* manually
use SQL to mark the default image vocabulary (created by image.module) to be
a free-tag vocabulary, and it seems to work correctly afterward.

I've done a general reorg/cleanup of those prompts in the version I'm about
to commit to CVS. :-)

See my previous note to the list on this. It's non-trivial, although I admit
it's a good idea in principle.
