Hey man,

  In a previous thread I talked about the design approach I'm taking with
the new 'vex browser' I'm adding to mythvideo. Essentially, rather than add
the concept of a 'series', I went with a tagging approach where the user can
create 'virtual folders' or 'views's on any of their video contents by tag..

Expressions like these are currently supported:

movie & horror
tv show &  animated & the simpsons
movie & horror & wes craven

you get the idea...

I actually have it working although I have some large cleanups to do (as
well as implementing the context menus). and I've been a bit busy the last 2
weeks... its coming along though... ;)
