Forcing people to jump through hoops like this is unlikely to be popular - it's a make work task in a lot of cases. Personally, I'd be more inclined to use tags if I could control the sorting of them in the web interface. Since I don't find the ordering the web interface uses at all helpful I'd really like to at least be able to turn it off. -- "You grabbed my hand and we fell into it, like a daydream - or a fever."
