OK, for better XEmacs support, if I understand well.

Well, I wouldn't call org-default a better default, but that's fine with me. I
mean: if org-default is black for the majority of the people, they won't even
see that you can customize that aspect of the modeline (in a light scheme).
So, I prefer some color (I chose orange) that everybody can customize, and
that makes everybody be aware of the tags used for filtering (in this case).
But, as said, I don't mind the default: I'll customize it anyway for my own

Just that I'm still to ignorant of the inner working of property list. But
it's nice to give me a hint. That could help me to quicklier come with a
working solution.

Glad if it's of use.
