They wouldn't need specific action statements like "create tag <name>" to accomplish this. A "simple" scan of the world database files could do it. However, considering AW's database is at least a gig, and is practically constantly being accessed (except for 5 minutes around 3am everyday, I believe), I don't think this would be possible except, unless, the search was performed on the backup database. This would then raise the potentiality for corruption of the backup in case the power went out, say, when performing a search. The alternative is to make a backup of the backup, and do the search on one, while keeping the REAL backup safe. But would that mean AW would be "down" for 10 minutes around 3am everyday or could the other backup be made some other way? Roland'd know.

But it wouldn't need to suck up more object data just to "tag" everything when everything's already "tagged".
