A beta tester suggested that heirarchical tags, when applied to an asset, could result in an actual directory being created in their library, and a symlink to the “best” variant of the asset (along with any sidecars) being added to that library.
Removing the tag would result in deleting that symlink.
As an example, by adding the
Who/Doe/Jane tag to
$library/2021/2021-03-13/IMG_1234.JPG, a new directory
$library/Who/Doe/Jane would be created, and a symlink to
$library/2021/2021-03-13/IMG_1234.JPG be added.
Note that this could also be a webdav view.
