10.4: Automate Spotlight comment tags via AppleScript

Clearly none of you work with a temporary folder -- I use them all the time, and this script is perfect. Everything that flows through the temporary folder gets tagged, and when it's later permanently filed, Spotlight already knows about it.

That's the point of this hint...
