The annotation dialog shows it as a tree.  One can drag and drop tags
around in that tree, but that's a move, not a copy.  So either way, it
needs to be consistent.

I'd like it to not have to be a tree myself, for my sports shooting,
which I'd like to arrange by season as well as gender.  I guess I
could create a new category (or categories) for that purpose, though.
