Thanks, Ingo. Would it stand to reason that the current tagging scheme
will be depreciated then? Would all the user's tags be lost?

I have not begun tagging my mail, but it looks like an idea that will
be very useful to me. Should I wait until 4.2 (Akonadi) so that my
hard work tagging will not be lost?
