WordPress problem: Url encoding on Tag’s slug.

First, let’s look into the database schema: taxonomy, terms…hello, Drupal? Maybe, it will not long WP start call its posts as “Node”? I mean, WordPress database really changed a lot in this release; the nerdy-geeky names used in the WordPress database table reflecting that the method of manage content in modern CMS are becoming more and more abstract and complex also at the same time flexible.
