[drupal-devel] Folksonomy: No taxonomy.module Changes / URL Design

I'm swinging back and forth on the game plan here.

The first approach is to use vocab and term tables and start hacking 
patches into taxonomy. This scares me as I don't know enough about 
taxonomy and how it's used by core and contrib modules.

The second approach is to use vocab but create parallel term tables. 
This only requires a single small patch to taxonomy to stop it 
generating form edit fields for modules that are not taxonomy or forum.
This lets us keep folksonomy.module as a separate and usable contrib 
module and thrash out user interface and requirements without screwing 
up taxonomy in the process. The long term plan would still be to roll 
this back into taxonomy once we know exactly how it should work.
