True Story:  In 2006, at a brown bag lunch at LL, I explained to Philip that
I really thought we should be able to apply tags to inventory items.  It
would do a lot to facilitate searching.  It's 4 years later and we still
cant tag items.  My impression at that time is that he didn't think it was
worthwhile.
