As I see it a tag like "fm" would be associated with synonyms like
"frequency modulation", "frequency_modulation", "Frequency Modulation"
"modulation de frequence", "DX7 synthesis" that could be added to it at
any later date, so a search for any of the synonyms would ultimately
return whatever was connected to the tag.
