Need tag support in .info files of content bundles

The .info file for content bundles should include a "tags" key having a value provided as a list (comma delimited?) of tags, or keywords, which describe, categorize, or otherwise meaningfully identify the bundle's contents. These tags serve two basic purposes. First, they will provide a way for children to locate lots of content (specifically activities) by general subject or category (eg. math, games, language, art, etc.). Second, it will offer developers a way to group like content under a more specific tag (eg. MaMaMedia, GCompris, etc.)

This simple but useful addition to .info files has been hidden in the HIG (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Human_Interface_Guidelines/Activities/Activity_Bundles#Activity_Tags) for some time now, but never received proper treatment in trac.

The mime_types entry uses a semi-colon separated list, same should be used for tags.
