I agree with that. Some kind of automatic fixer would be great!

I was not complaining about the work. What I really meant was that the
problem with "tag,tag,tag" is not restricted to the old clipart, but to the
new ones too, as some people are used to not put space between tags, so even
if we fix the old cliparts, there will always be new and wrongly spaced
tags. Sorry if it sounded as a complain. :)

Best regards,
Leonardo Cunha
