Someday I suppose Apple will improve the useability of Spotlight across all applications. We'll all be able to tag files as "pending" or "requiring anothers input", etc.
In the meantime, all credit to the developer, this is a slick tool for tagging and annotating files.
With all the buzz about metadata at the moment, I'd guess we're all going to have to re-think how we use our Macs in the coming years, and I'd like to think this cool utility is going to give me a bit of a head start.
The developer's site has easy to follow step by step instructions
