The Add Tags command can work on multiple photos, but Modify Tags works
on only one photo at once (since it displays the existing tags for the

tags and also work on multiple photos (which is very useful for adding),
so we have two commands.

than your own preset tags.

Sadly this won't happen for 0.7 - there's not enough time. This feature
is a strong candidate for 0.8, however.
