That sounds good to me; it seems to exactly capture what's going on
(to tell the truth, something does feel sort of funny about the term
`link', but I can't find any logical reason for this feeling, so I'll
chalk it up to familiarity with the old term).

My current thought is that it's best to change both -- still change
tag->id for file ids, but _also_ change the `tag' command to `link'.

It's fine with me.  The changes I'm proposing are very surface level, so
I don't think any real rewriting is required, just a few search-replaces
and a check to catch any oddities.

[But it's probably a good idea to wait until you're finished with your
current tutorial changes -- so please post a note when you're done.]
