+1 for being able to put user/role based permissions on vocabularies. I
see this as extremely important (can we do menus too?)

Attachment: http://drupal.org/files/issues/taxonomy_db_rewrite.patch (6.71 KB)

I'd like to present a use for db_rewrite_sql: taxonomy rewrites. If this
goes through, it will be possible to create an access mechanism,
languages and whatever for taxonomy.
This is a very small change, I think, much smaller than the
node_rewrite_sql megpatch was 'cos at the moment nothing changes. There
are no DISTINCTs deleted. But this opens a door for future things.
Also, this only affects taxonomy.module, 'cos no other module deals
with term_data and vocabulary tables (well, forum.module does, but
those queries does not need a rewrite).

please, let's identify some use cases before we run more queries through
the regex and hooks implied by db_qeury_sql. There might be a good
reason to do this, but you have to convince us.

In my latest version of db_rewrite_sql, which Dries has not yet
commited, regexs are not executed if not necessary. That version was
created well before Moshe's post, and I'm pretty sure it will pass,
'cos it is not a feature but a bugfix patch actually.
Until there are no implementations of hook_db_rewrite_sql which cares
for primary_field=='vid' or 'tid' , the performance hit is minimal, no

Use cases:
- Permissions for taxonomy terms/vocabs,  some tables and conditions
must be joined for taxonomy queries
- Multilanguage pages/taxonomy (i18n), additional conditions needed
also for taxonomy
