comment Can tags have hierarchy?
Perhas you can add that another reason websites do not implement tag hierarchies (and complex non-hierarchical tag structures) is the complexity of the database design and possible perforance issues.

comment Can tags have hierarchy?
The Gmail labs feature is not very useful. But I disagree about the other comment ("mails having tags from different branches of the hierarchy treedoesn't make sense"). It does make sense if I want to apply the "Chess" tag to some mails (and automatically the "Board Games" tag if I have an hierarchy "Games -> Board Games -> Chess") and also the "Holland" tag because the mails are about a chess tournament in Amsterdam.

comment Do people really want to look at multiple windows at once?
@RacheL I agree. Pilots have sound alarms for really important info, like fire in the plane, low altitude, etc. I guess this may have to do more with too much information on sight. A red light may get neglected if you are not looking at the console for a few seconds.
