Tag Cleaner

Bring some consistency to your tagging with Delicious Tag Cleaner
What would a "Delicious Tag Cleaner" be? It is tool for removing unnecessary tags from your del.icio.us account....

If you're like me, you probably have thousands of bookmarks collected over years and years of web surfing and hundreds of tags used to describe them. But the thing is that over these months/years you haven't been able to come up with a consistent taxonomy for your tags.

I have, for example, dozens of different tags for expressing links related to software development: "dev", "devel", "development" etc.

So this tool can suggest you tags to be merged together, so you can choose one by one and have this tool to merge the chosen tags on your delicious account.
As you clean-up tags doesn't that remove them from the stream-of-consciousness thing? Aren't they losing their value and becoming subject headings? Poor ones at that.
