I can see one clear case where that would become a problem: mistaggings. If I set up something so that in 99% of the cases, it'd tag new mail correctly with say "inbox unread mytag", I could quickly pick the mistagged ones out and remove the offending tag. If you do it like above however, the autotag script would come merrily along and retag them. -- - Marten
