It has not been an issue yet, because I never bothered with tags. However, I
recently decided to bite the bullet and use them. I'm still trying to get
them in my workflow.
However, recent postings on the list have made me a little anxious about 2.0
or 2.1 (I am using 1.9). Hence my question.
Apparently some people are having problems and the proposed work-arounds are
not quite what I expected.
Hope that helps.
The trouble with common sense is that it is so uncommon.
