Re: pytagsfs


Hi Jean-Baptiste,

Sorry, I thought I'd sent this e-mail several days ago, but I had postponed it
and forgotten about it.

Glad to hear things are working well for you.

If you don't mind joining the list and sending your questions there, that'd be
great.  Other users may be able to answer some of them, and the answers would be
archived so that might help others, too.

I've CC'd the list with this reply, BTW.

I have some thoughts about this.  I can't say for sure that pytagsfs will
support persistent storage of meta data outside of the tagged files themselves,
but it seems reasonable.  I understand that start-up time for large collections
can be rather long, and I'd like to do what I can to alleviate this problem.

I will be trying to focus on performance after the release of version 0.9.0,
which should not be too far away.  Would you be willing to help test
