yes, exactly, and it's great.  that's exactly what i'd like applied  
to my tex documents directly as well.  being able to tag a tex file  
with metadata, and then (re)organize them, allows a powerful level of  
indirection above traditional hard-wired folder layouts.  find just  
turned up 198 tex documents in my home directory, and i probably have  
twice that on my laptop.  i realize i could accomplish some of this  
through other apps, but i'd like direct support within the  
application, and i think it's a natural evolution.
