Description (last modified by scribu)

It's an obscure WPMU feature that 1) hasn't been maintained 2) hardly anyone uses and 3) slows down development on the regular taxonomy code:

#5809 #18609 #18617

There isn't much code to remove, but the idea is to not have to worry about "global terms" anymore at all.

21734.diff takes care of the raw code removal.

To be completely back-compat, we'd need to automatically install a plugin, when upgrading a WPMU network which had global terms enabled.
