Adding tags to directories
And this will add tags recursively
AdminIlian (Dev, TagSpaces) commented
in the next version of the app (1.9.x), the name of the parent directory of a file, will be considered in the search results. This makes every word in the parent directory name act as a tag for all directly contained files.

I can see this being a useful way to migrate initially from hierarchical file management to tag-based management. After using this feature, one could then collapse all of their files into one flat directory and be done with hierarchy for good.
Although for users who want a hybrid tag+hierarchy setup, I think a better approach would be to allow filtering by folder name (perhaps with a front slash prefix, as tags are prefixed with + when searching in TagSpaces). Otherwise, tagging by folder would be entirely redundant.
