A question on tags: I am interested to know if my (valuable) tagging of 8000 
photos over the christmas break is reconstructable from my photo collection 
without digikam's database.  

So, is the entire hierarchy for a tag written to file metadata, or just the 
leaf tag?

For example if I have a photo tagged as "People/Will", how is this 

What if the photo is "People" AND "People/Will"?
