Sorry when I ask such late (I'd not the time to follow the original thread),
but what exactly do you mean by "slices inside slices" and why is it not
supported? I personally understand by "slices inside slices" something like


And this _IS_ supported, of course. And Pass 9 allows one to mix slices in
arbitrary ways through set operations, so I'm still confused what particular
set/slices problem can't be solved by it? Can you give me a pure slice-based
example (no interaction with other tags) and a result you want to see and
which you think cannot be done with a set operation on the -o command line?

I'm still a little bit confused, so feel free to force my opinion.
