	No, that doesn't seem like a good idea at all.  I meant store and  
access it the same way (if you can build the key and tags when you're  
setting it, you can do it again when you look it up).

	The goal of suggesting that was to determine whether it'd be  
sufficient for people who are looking to do things with tags.
