Not that much difficulty.  The original request was specifically for one
flavor, on its face.  Discussion clarified that representing all flavors
with one tag was just as useful, and the appropriate change was made.

You're a brave man! Go and break through the            John Cowan
lines, and remember while you're out there              cowan at
risking life and limb through shot and shell, 
we'll be in here thinking what a sucker you are!
