Add easier support for merging keywords

There needs to be an easy way to merge keywords when there are entries which are basically duplicates. Plenty of mere synonyms such as "marriage-problems", "marital discord" and "marital strife" would be more effective if there was a single entry. Only more specific entries like "marital argument" need to remain.

Currently, the only way to merge is to edit each title page, remove the old and add the new keyword. An extremely inefficient process. Is there a way to contact staff for individual keyword similarities? I suggest an automated way of managing the corrections.

Please vote for this idea if you too would like a tool to merge and clean up keywords.

Absolutely needed. Otherwise, we are stuck with editing potentially hundreds of titles are posting here to fix things.

They also need to support chaining of similar keywords. For example, if you merge all of your examples into "marriage-problems" then the system should automatically convert "marital-discord" and "marital-strife" into "marriage-problems" because they are all chained together.
