MUCH needed: Categories as Namespaces... aka. Subforums

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 Help
I've found a bit of discussion of similar ideas on here... but nothing fresh and nothing that led anywhere.

Here's a feature that will pretty much make or break several large sites I'd like to install Vanilla on: the ability to treat categories like namepaces, à la the subforums of other forum software.

From a category page, I'd like to be able to search solely within the category, as well as display tag clouds/tag searches within that category.

Imagine a large car forum. Wouldn't it be nice to restrict your searches to the Toyota category when your Corolla transmission breaks down?

This feature would even be very useful on this very forum. I'm getting pretty tired of coming up with dozens of outdated threads on Vanilla 1 whenever I do a search.

Can anyone point me in any directions on how to implement this?
