Well, I prefer to tag logically so that when I read the tag I immediately
understand what it means. To the uninitiated OS*25 really doesn't say what
it is on the tin. "OOC OS 1_25k doesn't exactly do it either but its getting
there. As for clever searching, that's something else. In my opinion the
code needs to be smarter, not me.
