I believe hierarchies are easier when there's a lot of information.  You go
browsing by topic.

If there are only tags available, you'd have to look for hundreds of tags to
see if none of the possible names for the "thing" has been used ("database",
"db", "relational", "orm", "mapper", etc.). 

Ammending the current hierarchic structure with an alternate tag interface
would be interesting, though.  But not making it the main interface or the
only one.

Tags are cool when they are few.  They are a nightmare when there are hundreds
or thousands of them to search for something.
