What will you do with them? I think you must be talking about deleting tags
that users have put in (intentionally in at least some cases). I don't think
any of mine successfuly made it into the database, but I would be pretty

So this is getting sensible. Bart seems to think it's too late. I'm just not
across all of the design activity of the last few months. I do understand
that you might have gone too far down the road.
I'd be curious to see if anyone else sees a need. I find delimited strings
inherently unsatisfactory to work with, so I also wonder if there are any
other workarounds that we could at least recommend?
(And I'm turning in now, so I'll go quiet for a bit.)
