In yesterday's thread, the tag works-with::network-traffic came out as
well.  I like network-traffic more, but I can't decide if 'network'
includes something that 'network-traffic' doesn't.

A reorganisation takes more time than adding a tag, and this morning I'm
trying to implement traceable tag patches, so that when someone known
and trusted does work on the web interface, it can go in directly
without review.

I'd appreciate if someone could ensure that we go back to this list.
