Importing Data

First, thanks for Tag.

Second, here's what I think Tag is missing.

(1) Data importing. Tag should be able to batch-set tags of mutiple files by reading them from a database. The database could be iTunes' .cidb (but Apple hasn't made that easy!), or iTunes' library backup (which is .xml), or, perhaps most conveniently, a simple text file, with one tag/comment per line, and blank lines separating track entries.

(2) A Help file. It doesn't have to be fancy or in Apple's atrocious help format, a simple man-like file would do.

(3) AppleScript support. Good AppleScript support would make (1) unnecessary.

Keep on coding!

I have added AppleScript support to the svn version of Tag, but I am not an AppleScript guru.

Do you have suggestions for what the suite should look like?
