I have not played extensively with a release supporting tagging so
forgive this possible trivial questions.

Is the tagging data stored in the resource file itself as metadata or
in some corresponding file or files?

Is it possible to pre-tag the items in a set of resources (say a brush
set) that can easily be distributed with the resources?

Are the tags managed- for example, if there is no resource with a tag
because it was deleted does the tag get removed?

Thanks in advance. I realize this may not be appropriate for a devel
list but figured those who implemented the feature would have the best
understanding st this time.
