Well, keywords are used as a very restricted set of tags, so only
users in the Developer group can create them. We've discussed free
form issue tags that any user can create or edit in #python-dev and
tracker-discuss[0]. I'm pretty sure they'd cover your use-case. I've
submitted a patch to Rietveld[1], but it seems I never filled it in
the meta-tracker, oopsie.

If you (or anyone else) want to test-drive the tags feature, I can
create an account in the experimental tracker[2] (which needs some
attention anyway). I should be able to submit the patch to the
meta-tracker during the weekend.

Also, if you would like to bookmark arbitrary sets of issues, the
bookmarklet and form in http://static.bot.bio.br/tool.html may be of
help. You can paste the ids into the search page's ID field and create
a query for a given (static) set of issues.
