Re: Proposal: do not align tags in Agenda

Hello Kyle,

Thanks very much for your feedback.  As these are changes I made
months ago, I forgot the … finer details—I basically got my narrative
completely wrong, my apologies.

My problem wasn't at all, as you point out, that the tag would erase the entry.

It has to do with habits: The habit graph overwrites anything else.  I
like having org-agenda-tags-column to a low value (wide screen), but
tags are crucial to my workflow, so them being overwritten is

My previous patch is completely overkill for that purpose (it's even
misguided since it does stem from a misunderstanding of tags
alignment).  Here's a simpler patch.  It may be a matter of taste,
