“This means, among other things, that you could use a tag-based “related posts” plugin if you wanted.”

Actually, that’s another thing that Simple Tags can do, so I’ve turned it on and am considering whether or not I like it.

When it comes to adding new functionality, the whole minimalism thing is a bit of a rod for my own back.
