Tomeu and myself decided that the 'don't keep' button does not make 
sense in the dialog. The argument was, that the entry is saved already. 
And don't keep would mean that the entry needed to be erased. With the 
added 'resume by default', we don't have the proliferation of useless 
entries we used to have.

Happy to keep on arguig about it.

Yeah, those tags could be generated based on content. In write or browse 
this looks like a quite logic thing to do.
