Well...I have on question here right now. Is 1+2 deleted as soon
as there is no client of either tag or only if there is no client
of both tags? In the latter case this may clutter your bar (which
is, as we know of limited space up to now) if you do something
like using views 1+2, 1+3, 1+4, 1+5 and deleting all clients of
2,3,4,5 but not of tag 1 would still keep those union views in the
bar (I don't care about the cache size). If 1+2 is deleted as
soon as there is no client of 2, then I think it's ok.
Or in the case of 1+2+3 one may think of stripping this down to 1+3
as soon as all tag 2 clients have gone.
