        Why? It's got to be per-file or it's useless.

        Status tagging needs to be on UNversioned properties and against
        any object. As a sanity check tagging a file might imply you're
        *also* tagging the directory. Although that has it's own issues
        as directories have their own peg versions.

        That begs the question....why are directories allowed multiple
        peg versions? Wouldn't it make much more practical sense to
        special case directories to have a single peg?
