All terms can have descriptions, but in the admin section you can easily edit the descriptions of categories but not tags. It would be nice if tags got the same treatment.

This is still missing some things: showing the descriptions when listing tags on the admin screen (in the table on the right), support for custom taxonomies - the textarea to enter description is shown but there's no way to use/display the data (tag_description() will need to support custom taxonomies).

The new patch (9381.002.diff) add the description column to the tags table in admin. It also creates a function called term_description which category_description and the new tag_description both use. It should work across the board now for tags as well as custom taxonomies.

The name "tag_description()" is inconsistent to wp function names, it should be renamed to "get_tag_description()".

#7 @ramiy

This apply to category_description() too. It should be renamed to get_category_description().
