Great idea.

Thanks for this too.

I think branches are a good way of doing non-trivial changes. For
simple fixes and such I'm happy to just to them in master.

I'm pretty excited about the hw-generate-expressions branch and did a
bit of mucking around in it in hw-generate-expressions2 now. I love
your idea of the generator function! I simplified it a little bit as
currently HW is described via a single tag again. Review/feedback
welcome, I broke the --pkgreport unfortunately currently as the the
simplification for generate_tag_expressions() now returns a "status,
tag" intead of "status, taglist". If you approve of the general
direction I'm happy to fix that of course.
