Move categories & tags back to the Write Post/Page sidebar for efficiency & usability

In 2.3x, there was a logical division between the post's content (things you type on the left) and its meta data (things you select on the right). In 2.5, categories and tags -- things that authors have to touch on every post -- have moved into the content section and are more difficult to access because of the excessive scrolling required.
Since there's plenty of whitespace to the right of the textarea, we propose moving categories and tags back to the sidebar.
See this forum thread for more details. The attached patch comes from ericr23's modification of edit-form-advanced.php, linked on p2 of that discussion.
