I've been thinking about this recently too. It should be fairly simple to use the ActsAsTaggable plugin.

It would also be nice to add some additional tags to find by tags and probably a way to sort when enumerating.

You could also change the admin to show tags as folders, similar to Gmail.

I mostly use the page attachment feature as a way to display a asset in context to the page. For example if I have a list of links I would grab the first image attached and display it next to the link as a icon. Tags would make page attachments more useful because you could find the asset you want within the context of a page without relying on the position.

My client has a lot of assets stored in Radiant.  We're using
paperclip.  They wanted to know if they could use folders to organize
their assets, but I thought tags would be better.

Has anyone else done anything like this?  Is it something that should
be added to paperclipped?  Or other thoughts on organizing a ton of
assets?  (they are mostly PDF documents, on various topics)
