Amazing. I've been using emacs-unicode-2 branch for a year and wasn't
aware of Tumme's existence until now. Certainly it's a great step
beyond the thumbs.el. :-)
Two more things,
1) I got this when I first use tumme-tag-files
basic-save-buffer-2: /home/jin/.emacs.d/tumme/.tumme_db: no such directory
It would be fine to add a simple test and create the directory
2) Is there a more visible way to see all the tags associated to the
files in dired buffer?
