I explained my idea poorly, let's try again. Suppose you find somewhere a
large set of interesting brushes, which you plan to use some times, but not
always. You install them in a sub-folder of your brushes folder, and choose
for this sub-folder a meaningful name. Then, maybe depending on some
explicit action, you would ask to import these brushes, giving to them as a
first tag their sub-folder name. This would not prevent you to add to them
other tags later, but it would automatically categorize them, and you could
look at them in the brushes dialog simply by placing their tag in the filter
field. By the way, it would also be useful, especially in this case, to have
a negative filter, i.e. filter the resources that don't have a given tag.
