Comment (by ryan):

 I don't really care either way, although I think those who have to have
 completely separate link categories and post categories are obsessive
 tweakers who need extra hobbies.  :-)  I think SELECT * on the categories
 table with link cats, post cats, and tags in it is just fine. For me there
 is so much overlap between them all it wouldn't matter. It's just a big
 pool of keywords to be used for whatever. Simple, elegant, easy fo sheezy.
 The messy queries that test the counts for this and that were added to
 appease those who are more complicated and demanding than simple me.  Some
 people don't like their eggs and pancakes to touch.  Go figure.

 The idea behind having everything in categories is to not store the same
 stuff over and over.  There is often lots of overlap between link
 categories, post categories, and tags.  They're all just taxonomy after

 But, hey, whatever.  I'll let everyone else argue over it awhile before I
 write any more code.  This is not something I particularly care about, so
 I'll let the more passionate carry the water.
