The way I've dealt with that personally is to allow keywords to be
'merged', so that all are changed to one keyword. In this situation
you'd probably want to have a monthly poll of the commiters, voting on
a list of keyword mergers?

Alternately there could be a second table that would have two columns,
keywordid1 and keywordid2, that stores associations more "loosely".
