I also spent some time integrating tagging into nautilus, using
tracker as a backend. However following the monumentally huge flamewar
on ddl after tracker was proposed for inclusion last cycle, I stopped
work on it.

With heavy refactoring going on in nautilus atm I hope to revist my

1) Tracker and/or Xesam getting into GNOME
2) Xesam supporting tags
