Awesome, I'll try it over the weekend!

I think one reason why some folks are having trouble shifting their
perspective from workspace-based to tag-based is because of this missing
feature. Being able to temporarily dump my "net" pile of stuff and my
"biz" pile of stuff on my desk at the same time is exactly what it's all
about. Then later I take my "biz" stuff off and put my "art" pile of
stuff on. Then later still I take my "net" stuff off and focus on my
"art". Etc.

I only have one desktop (view) and I change what's piled onto it.
Sometimes I need to have more than one pile (tag) on my desk at the same
time. Sometimes I just need one additional item on my desk and that's
when I use appendtag().

Thanks! -Ross
