Hmmm ... you know, you *could* implement tag-query as a bunch of sym-links:
symlink to tagged-file
symlink to tagged-file2
You'd use the symlink just to find out the target file path and then open
the file using it's real path so that recently used files lists would
still be correct.
However, the proper solution would be to design a data structure that was
specific to this requirement, rather than a general purpose data store
like an rdbms.
