ok, elisp gurus, could you take a look at this and tell me if there is a more succinct way to do it. the main function takes a single tag or a list of tags and returns true if the org-item tagslist contains either the tag or an element of the tags list. http://rgr.pastebin.com/d5932286b
it at least works. In particular I wonder if throw was the best option to quite the loop on first match.
