It was specifically said that it was not the Moist taxation book. Also, RS has a new main character, so even if it mentions Moist, he won't be the protagonist.

They definitely will have to tax something; Vetinari wants to build the Undertaking. However, they have the Device to power the Undertaking, and either way, it would be silly for the city to tax something the city will operate. Steam has been in use already to heat UU. What else could steam be used for? Maybe a railway outside the city; it would complete for long distance hauling but there would still be short haul work for the traditional methods so it wouldn't put large numbers of people out of work. A Stanley Steamer type of vehicle might compete; they were marvelous things.
