We are making forums and forum containers here, not terms. This patch
returns a status so the calling code can set the appropriate message
(or no message at all). This has the happy side effect of preventing
any potential problems with calling this from when cron is running and
other similar situations. The define()s are done in common.inc to
encourage similarly architected code; separate UI from DB manipulation.

+1... this might be used during module installation for modules that
require their own vocab or perhaps in the installer as a way to set up
some default categories for "instant" site creation.  Not cluttering
the screen with lots of drupal_set_messages would be a good thing in
these instances too.
