#412518: Convert taxonomy_node_* related code to use field API + upgrade path adds a new {forum_index} table which demormalizes data needed for common forum queries. The current implementation only indexes on node_save()/comment_save(), however in the case that the forum_nav_vocabulary changes in the lifetime of a site (side note, does this ever happen?), or that forum module is disabled then re-enabled, it's possible that the index gets out of sync. So before release we'll need to add a cron indexer, same principle as the one in tracker.module, which handles rebuilding that table in those cases.

Quite hypothetical... ;) I think we can deal with this bug if it occurs.

This isn't hypothetical, while most people won't run into it, it's definitely an issue in the implementation.
