True, but in the case of having all the common tags shown, it would basically be the
same as setting the flags to start with..  You would hit "OK" with all the tags set
that you want to be set.  Perhaps tags that are in some pictures, but not all, would
be greyed or something to indicate they are used too...  That part would be tricky
perhaps, not so much to code, but to make it user friendly.

Sure, I added it in, no biggie..  I just tested it, I hadn't noticed the
"merge/remove" at the bottom before, but it seems to work.  :)  One minor tidbit, it
would be nice if both Merge and Remove were greyed out in the single-image edit,
unless I'm missing something..  On single edits, you would just click or unclick
individual keywords, right?

I wish I had this code about a month ago when I hand-edited the XML to clean out about
180 mis-tags (apparently when I was scrolling in the Subject I clicked the first
person in the list, doh!) and a few week ago I fixed (by single-image edit) about 45
pictures that were mistagged.
