Allowing windows to exist without any tags at all seems like a bad
idea to me. In what view should they appear? All or none? Both seem
wrong, and just tagging them with the first tag that is viewed after
they appeared isn't really clean either. Besides, the ability to
select just one tag for viewing is probably the quickest way to
"restructure" your view from scratch, I'd realy miss that.
