It can save the features (or the knowledge) on a flat-file or database, of
course is better on a database. And the number of post do not care in the
performance since it is computed one time, what affect the performance is
the number of tags or categories. It will work fine up to 50 tags or
categories, with graters number it will take some time to compute, which is
not a bad point because usually you take some time to write articles and
this categorizer can run in the "background" (via Ajax or similar call).

What the folk thing of my ideas?
