Would the Leaftag functionality be a plugin, so that the slow-down is 
optional?  Looking at the Leaftag blog 
(http://www.chipx86.com/blog/tag/leaftag) the developer mentions (in 
Feburary) lack of time and moving Leaftag to a dedicated server - AFAIK 
it hasn't happened yet.

The slow-down with scaling is a real pity - a tagging filesystem would 
be excellent for linux.
