I recently created (and contributed) the taxonomy_breadcrumb module
(http://drupal.org/node/61944) that generates taxonomy based breadcrumbs
for all node pages and allows admins to replace the normal taxonomy/term
pages with regular nodes.  The module adds a form element to the term and
vocab add/edit pages where a user can enter a path.  This path is not an
alias, but a path each generated breadcrumb will link to instead of
taxonomy/term/X.  I realize the functionality in this module isn't what
you described (you want an alias, not a redirect* to a node), it sounds
like the type of interface you're looking for.  It wouldn't be difficult
add something to this module, or simply rip out what's useful to create a
new module.

* the term redirect is not being used in the HTTP protocol sense.
