[drupal-devel] Before I patch: is there an existing /[cat]/[user] solution?

I am trying to auth-generate URL alias paths in the form of 
/blogname/category or /category/blogname (or in pathauto speak: 
/[user]/[cat] or /[cat]/[user]).

I have posted numerous questions about this in several places.  Jeremy of 
GreenAsh recommended I try using taxonomy_browser in combo with pathauto 
for this (see http://drupal.org/node/21320#comment-36674 ), but I as of yet 
have really no clue as to how to use taxonomy_browser to do anything...and 
have yet to find what I found to be a useful taxonomy_browser doc reference.

Before I try my own patch for this, I ask:  can anyone think of way I can 
get things to work with existing 4.6.0 tools/resources so that I don't have 
to go code something myself?  I am willing to pay $30 US dollars via 
paypal.com (or some other convenience mechanism) to anyone who can help me 
accomplish this task.

More details can be found here:


As well as in the included email found below.

I have already created one patch ( http://drupal.org/node/21885 ) for 
another problem ( http://drupal.org/node/21712 ), and I'm hoping I can do 
something similar for this problem (described in more detail below).

Thanks very very much in advance for any help,
