I went ahead and moved the functionality to it's own category since we want the mathematical information at the category level. Could someone look over these changes?

The first patch only concerned univarite polynomial rings, the logic is not all correct for multivariate polynomial rings (though on an orthogonal note, that could use some fixing up as well). It seems odd to have a category of univariate polynomial rings over a fixed basering, which is why I put the logic into the concrete object. I suppose the category should a be declared as a graded R-algebra as well (do we have join categories yet?).
I don't know if PolynomialRing? asserts its basering is commutative, but IIRC it's been assumed for a long time.

I would give this a positive review for Robert's idea and I would open a new ticket for the multivariate rings. I'll just send a mail to Mike whether he is ok with that or no.
I have been through the patch, and it sounds good! I won't have the time to actually test it before some time, so please anyone beat me to it!
Just one micro question: does PolynomialRing? actually check that the ring is commutative?
Cheers
