I do like the whole 'tags' concept and can see myself using it a lot, but the ability to colour the folder and the line is a visual concept I need returned The dots are too small, too easily missed.

One suggestion being to have a separate column beside the name column, showing multiple tags where present while the folder takes the colour of the highest priority tag? A couple of people have also mentioned the 'dot' being on the right - true. Yes, I have sent my feedback Apple!
