Hi John,

Thank you for the feedback.

I will take a look at it. I am not sure the thematic version takes the 
tags from the tag selection tree into account at all as I originally 
developed the thematic versions outside of the export tool and just 
suggested my ogr2ogr scripts to Brian so we could also offer that 
thematic breakout as part of the export tool.

Maybe we could talk directly so I could better understand how we could 
create the thematic layers based on the tag selections and have it still 
be useful to you as a user of the export tool and shapefiles.
