What is described on http://drupal.org/node/22218 is nice. What is in
the core is super ugly. I surely was not paying attention when did
slipped in.

Just before I read this issue, I updated http://drupal.org/node/22218 to
reflect what is currently in core.

Until about a month ago, taxonomy_save_* functions were as in your
current patch. However, several modules (such as forum, simplenews)
need vid to be returned by taxonomy_save_vocabulary (as it was before
the status messages were introduced). Therefore, Dries committed patch
#19621 to fix this. See http://drupal.org/node/19621 and

I was too fast. Didn't see the & in taxonomy_save_vocabulary(&$edit).
This patch indeed solves the problem in a much cleaner way.

The patch looks excellent and removes some crufty code. :)
Unfortunately I cannot test it right now.

When deleting a forum, i get two set_messages:

    * Deleted term My forum 12.
    * The forum 0 has been updated.

When deleting a forum container with one forum in it, I get 3 messages:

    * Deleted term cont.
    * Deleted term in.
    * The forum container 0 has been updated.

Perhaps there needs to be some method of suppressing the
taxonomy.module messages when the function is called from another

Incidentally, if you click delete on a term or forum and then cancel,
you currently get redirected to admin/taxonomy or admin/forums. The
latter is a typo bug which should read admin/forum, but it would be
better UX in both cases if cancelling took you back to the page you
were on. The current behaviour feels like cancelling a dialog box in
Windows and having it show the desktop in response.

I'm not sure if you're taking responsibility for the forum.module cruft
as well as the taxonomy.module cruft: adding, editing and deleting terms
and vocabularies with various properties works fine in admin/taxonomy.
But as you can see above, forum.module doesn't even know there are
three SAVED_ possibilities so the logic is bad.

It seems forum.module was a bit broken before. Well, this patch cleans
up things a bit.
