This could be great for anal and lazy people like myself who get all
steamed by filesharers who don't bother to keep the proper metadata
about their resources.

Would be nice to see some actual useful tags, though. I didn't see
any useful info in the top rated tags other than an ID.

current options are pretty limited.

How could this enable something like pointers to Crit or What's
Related for arbitrary files?
