WordPress has a function for retrieving all post types based on a certain criteria called get_post_types(). Taxonomies should have this kind of API too.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added

I'm not sure this is needed, since you would use get_object_taxonomies() most of the time.

#2 @scribu

Maybe add the $output parameter to get_object_taxonomies() instead of adding a new function.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion removed
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 3.1

After more thought, get_taxonomies() would be quite handy.

get_object_taxonomies(), along with the rest of the functions, could be made to use it.

Rewrote the function, to avoid duplicate code.

Also, if $output is not 'names', the function returns an associative array: $tax_name => $taxobj

See get_taxonomies.2.diff
