I'm the author of those scripts, but it's been quite a while since I
looked at them... And to be honest, it's been a VERY long while since
I used ShadowPlan.

The tags limitation is due to the fact that my copy of Shadow Desktop
(OS X version) never supported tags. As I recall, the tags are stored
in a separate XML file somewhere -- but this was never implemented on
the Mac version of Shadow Desktop.

(See: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/shadow-discuss/message/23454)

It may take a big of spelunking to sort out how Shadow Plan stores
that data. I've never seen Shadowplan's XML tag files, so I wouldn't
know how to go about parsing them.

Feel free to dive into the SVN repository and make changes to those
scripts as you see fit.
