Regarding punctuated tags -
I mentioned (kind of in passing) that you can nest tags using punctuation, in my case a colon. Here’s an example:

So in my system, there’s also a #Context tag, in this case it would be #Work. (Context tags are the only tags I capitalize, and I don’t know why, but I’m consistent.) My auto-filer would take the file with the above tag, find the freelance folder inside of my base Work folder, and then file it under jappleseed/scripting. The way my system works, if there was a folder tagged @script even deeper within the @jappleseed folder, it would file it there instead of creating the folder at the base. So that’s why I started using these punctuation-split tags. There are some additional benefits, though.
