I also thought there was an issue for passing the object name and 
object id into PLG_replaceTags so permissions could be checked but it 
also appears to be missing. I know I wrote about that several years 
ago but can't remember if it ever made into the old bugtracker, let 
alone the new one.

The hard part of permissions on autotags is the permission applies to 
the editor, not the reader. The idea being when a user posts to the 
forum with [secrettag:scarystuff], the tag needs to be stripped if 
the poster does not have permission to use the secrettag. This can't 
be implemented now because when PLG_replaceTags is called, the author 
of the object is not passed in. If you are going to add permissions 
to autotags, perhaps you should rethink them from scratch and just 
create a new set of plugin APIs for them (for GL 1.7 for example). 
Autotags are one of the cool, unique features of Geeklog. Still, they 
could use an update since their first inception.
