i don't understand on how that would be the case. after execution of
the task the corresponding tag gets deleted anyway since they are only
i can't see on how changesets should be better. you would have to
start a changeset per deadline and that's even more complicated, since
it cannot be done easily within tag editors. also fellow mappers would
never know that someone else already has a changeset prepared, since
mostly people check the tags only.
