As a result of the 40 variables thread and assorted worg tutorials,  
I'm getting a little carried away with customising my workflow.  
Consequently, my tag list have grown to the extent that the fast tags  
selection interface is looking rather messy.

The small patch below adds the capability to create arbitrary new  
lines, either by adding "\n" (backslash n, not a newline!) to your # 
+TAGS: or by adding "(:newline . nil)" to org-tag-alist.

So I can have something like:

[a] @assorted [g] @gtd [c] @contexts

[o] other [r] relevant [t] tags

[m] more [f] for [d] different [p] projects

The patch is a very hacky cut and paste job with little understanding  
of the surrounding code, but I don't seem to have broken anything in  
my setup yet...

Best wishes,
