#1 Tag in Thunderbird

As I understand Tb 2.0 implements tags. Anyone tried using Tb's implementation of tags? Is it any good.

Secondly, I was wonder if its possible (via extensions) to create a kind of IMAP style model between TB and gmail, but with tags. What I am thinking about is a system where the Gmails db and TB's db constantly keep in sync, but not simply with folders but with tags. So if say I add a certain tag to one of my emails via the web interface, the next time I load Tb, it will sync with Gmails db and a tag the local copy of the email appropriately.

PS Please don't suggest switching to a provider with imap support. I can't do that.
