Still going somewhere, I hope :)

It's been paused for a while because I've been away for quite some time,
but I'm still committed to work on it (although, unfortunately, I can
only do it in the free time).

I know there is no documentation on the library API, and this is
documented ( :-) ) in /usr/share/doc/libtagcoll-dev/README:

"There's a reason: before producing documentation, I'd like to discuss
with other potential users about what could be the shape of a stable API
for this library." and "Please get in touch with me also if you start
using libtagcoll in some projects: since the API is going to change, at
least I'd have a chance to take you into account".

So, if you start using libtagcoll in some projects, please get in touch
with me and I'll be more than happy to help you :-)
