Some of this is available in AboutDB, the ACEDB database: Check out
the class TagInfo for information on specific tags. The help is a
bit scanty (non-existent, really) but changing tags that are used in
the code (have the tag SourceCode in AboutDB) should maybe be
avoided. Lots of experimentation recommended!

Unfortunately querying in TagInfo class doesn't work (and also you cannot
display the model), probably because of a lingering bug in the web server.

AboutDB is available through the web at URL:
