Could the tagging system be enhanced to support tag synonyms?

I've seen the answers to this question about tags: Do 23,000+ tags need tag database editors? but it's not clear if it's possible to somehow have a tag that is permanently made into a synonym for another tag. This is for a project that is renamed now, which means that it's not enough to retag existing questions once -- since people are very likely to use the old name for a while still.

(I'm not sure whether this is a feature request or not, but adding it since the system forces me to choose something, and it's looks like the most appropriate.)

  • It's not clear to me whether that question means that the answer is that there's no way to do that or not. One thing that I noticed there is "Some synonyms are already tracked and corrected automatically every hour" -- is it possible to ask for an addition to those automatically retagged synonyms? – Zee May 27 '10 at 2:31
  • Give that the linked feature request is [status-planned], I think that answers the question. – Jon Seigel May 27 '10 at 4:37
  • Ah, sorry -- I missed the tags completely (and ironically). – Zee May 28 '10 at 6:30
