This plugin allows you to add taxonomies just by giving them a name in the backend. It then creates the taxonomy for you, takes care of the URL rewrites, provides a widget you can use to display a "taxonomy cloud" or a list of all the stuff in there, and it allows you to show the taxonomy contents at the end of posts and excerpts as well.

To boot, it comes with a set of template tags for those who don't mind adapting their own theme.
