I thought the point of keyword generation was that it kicked in only
for those posts that *don't* already have a keywords header?

... but, hm, it looks like it appends generated keywords to the
existing keyword header value. That's really not ideal, is it :/

I was assuming that the point of the keyword generation was that it
made those articles which didn't have keywords look as if they did,
leaving those which *did* have human-written keywords alone. But it
looks like that's not quite what it does...
