Tags in export.bml

Title
Tags in export.bml

Short, concise description of the idea
Add tags to the XML produced by export.bml

Full description of the idea
Exporting a month of entries to an XML file via export.bml does not seem to include the entry's tags. I suggest adding XML markup to each entry to record this information, e.g.

    <tags>

        <tag>tagname</tag>

        <tag>another-tagname</tag>

        ...

    </tags>

An ordered list of benefits
  • Ability to include tag information as part of offsite backup of entries
  • Ability to search for tags in exported entry files with appropriate offsite software.

An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Existing software that knows about the XML format for exported entries will not understand the new XML markup.

An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
  • I assume this is not difficult, just an oversight, but I have not attempted to look at the source at the level necessary to provide any useful implementation suggestions.
