This mixes together two separate issues. Tags are, as I have already agreed,
an excellent way of doing a search mechanism. They don't get rid of the
need to have a workspace, though. Suppose I want to switch back and
forth between five very different brushes. Must I remember and select
a set of tags each time I switch? That would be very unpleasant. No,
whether or not there is a tag-based search system, there still needs to
be a way for the user to maintain a workspace holding a limited set of
arbitrarily chosen brushes.
