Great question, and I think it's perfectly fine if you can handle related
posts in your theme without the overhead of extra tables, indices and heavy
search algorithms. Here's what I did for Expound:

By default, the related posts section outputs posts from the same category,
ordered by date, simple as that. But it also looks for the popular YARPP
plugin and uses that instead, if it's active.
