WXR import/export doesn't support importing/exporting of tags

The WXR import/export feature doesn't support importing/exporting of tags. Exporting your posts, and importing to a new blog will be fine, except for the fact that you'll lose all your tags.

I used this feature/bug/quirk to help Spence with deleting all the tags from his posts. Basically, I exported the file, imported it to a new blog, and the tags were gone. Obviously, you wouldn't want that to happen all the time.

when exporting posts, we use the_category_rss() which includes both categories and tags. Need to distinguish those to do a proper tag import.
