Hi Robert,

There's a Taxonomy code sprint coming up in Chicago next month-

The organizers have their own agenda, but it might make sense to get
it released before then when a lot of taxonomy stuff is going to be
kicked around.

You could do that simply by posting a link to the files at the
taxonomy group, http://groups.drupal.org/taxonomy
