[Shotwell] element spacing, tags and events

I find that my tag list is growing quickly and has become quite long.
This means that when I tag a photo by dragging it onto a tag I must
quite frequently scroll the tag list up or down to bring it into view.
The vertical spacing between the elements in the tag list seems quite
large. I would like to suggest that you reduce the vertical spacing in
the tag list. In this way more tags will be visible and less scrolling
will be required. I realise that the list scrolls automatically when
the dragged item is moved to the top or bottom of the list but this is
much too slow.
I make these points because, for me, rapid tagging of photos is vital.
One of the features I particularly like about Shotwell is precisely
that tagging is so quick and intuitively simple. This is also why I
oppose hierarchical tags. Opening and closing the hierarchical tags
will slow down the tagging operation too much. Tagging is of course a
must if one wants to make sense of a large photo collection. But that
in turn requires that the application of tags be very fast and easy.
Shotwell, as it stands, is perfect in this respect.
