No it isn't (I think, anyway).  It's what I suggested a couple of
weeks ago.

Underneath, you store a random tag somewhere for each file (preferably
in {arch} rather than scattered in .arch_ids directories).  And you do
that for all tagging methods.  The different tagging methods merely
change how these tags get set---so they're more of a user preference
than a property of the archive, although if taglines are present, then
presumably they'll have to always work.
