Pending updates to the dictionary, I have a plugin available that lets you
add your own notes to dictionary entries and also tag them with keywords of
your choice.  Unfortunately, the details are local to your computer and not
available to other users.

It can be downloaded at http://www.lcsql.com/free-stuff.html, click the
lcDictUserNotes button.
