Sounds like a plan, but ...

suppose I could get this done this week, is there any reason we would
really want to subject ourselves to a lot of pain by waiting for another
cycle to get this in ? It's a fairly small change to a system that's
already fairly well evolved. It's kind of annoying if we had something
in 0.6, then something new in 0.8, and only really useful in 0.10
I'd really like something like this in and in return will help fix all
tag-related bugs and help implementing tags on all the features. I
REALLY want this to finally work well in GNOME.
