The category module might make this easier for you - it creates
categories (i.e. 'terms') as nodes, so you get to enter a URL on the
'add/edit category' page, same as on the 'add/edit' page for any other
node type. This is one of the many advantages of having categories as
nodes, IMO.

Doing this would be tricky, as it would tie a non-taxonomy-module
feature directly into the taxonomy admin interface. There would have
to be a lot of if(module_exist('path')) checks going on. I also don't
think that there's room for this field in the table on the 'list
terms' page.
