seems like acknowledging the "path form" of these
directory-derived tags might also make working with devices for
which no tag list has been, or can be, created.  i.e., when you
first install a large new USB stick, there will certainly be a
delay before a tag index can or will be built.  the grey slashes
might be black during that time.
