Re: labeling interface idea

Oh, and the biggest weakness in current implementations of the labeling
idea is that really none of them actually use intelligence to auto-label
files.  So users must manually label them.  That's wrong.  Most of what
we want to query we already entered in our documents' properties, our
music's tags, the simple fact that JPEG pictures are, well, images.
Integrating all this knowledge is the path to success.
