I should look at the code,

But are you saying that horses is similar to horseriding, love, hobby, 
palomino, wishlist, midget, cows ? Perhaps ordered by how often the 
related terms appear on the same node. This looks like 
del.icio.us/flickr related terms to me. But somewhere in this thread you 
said "Explore playing with term_relation so that similar tags are 
related to one another". In the above example, I don't see how you can 
draw any conclusions about horses being equivalent to horseriding.

I guess I'm puzzled by the algorithm you're using to define what is an 
alternate term (synonym?) as opposed to being a related term.
