Yes, with EBDB 0.6.12 I can insert and edit tags, and I can edit them
with both "e" and "E".  The error message when, in the extended
customize interface ("E"), I hit "[Apply]" and then "[Accept]", also
seems to have been fixed.  There is still one quirk: when I insert a
tags field on a record that already has a tags field, EBDB overwrites
the old field and, when it asks for the tags, it does not offer the
previous ones as default.  It would be more user-friendly if EBDB either
offered the previous tags as default, or simply signaled an error with a
short and clear message.

And two feature requests:

1. Undo.  So far I have never suffered much for the lack of undo (it is
   only an inconvenience) and of course I leave it up to you to
   prioritize this feature, but it would be useful, though clearly not
   as useful as 2:
2. Compatibility with other contacts formats.  I would like to import my
   Gmail contacts and complete my transition away from G$$gle spyware.

Should I open two bug reports for these two feature requests?
