Remark, don't take it as No to such functionality. Actually I'm
not sure yet if it would be worth effort to be implemented (I
mean the select tag(s) mechanism. The only drawback is, if new
clients occure, they would inherit all tags which are joined,
dunno if that would be annoying, my script would work slightly
different, new clients would only inherit the 'join' tag.
