  libtagcoll, right?

  I actually have another concern:

torrent:~> time tagcoll hierarchy < /tmp/tags-current > /dev/null
tagcoll hierarchy < /tmp/tags-current > /dev/null  19.74s user 0.07s system 90% cpu 21.789 total

  It looks like some sort of caching scheme is going to be necessary to
use this in interactive programs.  Would it be possible for you to build
that into the library?  (the other option is that everyone writes his
own caching code)

  Also, you should be putting your tag database in /var, not /usr...
