Allow tag synonyms

Basically, there are a number of tags, e.g. WindowsCE and WinCE which are synonomous and should be treated as such. Add a feature that allows users to set up synonyms for tags, such that when a given tag is selected, all the synonomous tags are also selected.

        How can we suggest or add synonyms? There are some little used tags that are important to me. They probably wouldn't be noticed otherwise.

        There needs to be a way to spot synonymous tags.

        This happens on the backend every hour. For example, items tagged csharp are updated to be tagged c# instead. Obviously they don't have a complete list of synonyms yet.
