I really like 1, though I can understand how 2 is the easier way to go.

I would LOVE #1. I've gotten used to the concept of private tags over on Pinboard recently, and oh, the useful-for-self. The major things I can think of that would need addressing with it:

- how to make it obvious that specific tags are nonpublic, particularly to someone else viewing that entry with special "access" or "custom" permissions?
- implementing a function that would let us change the privacy level of specific tags en masse and retroactively
- this would then imply that each individual tag must have a security level that is universal across a given tag - if this gets implemented, how to deal with pre-existing tags? Automatically deemed "private" until manually adjusted? How to translate current tag privacy practice into the new scheme (which I like very much, don't get me wrong; I just think that there'll be some ethics to make sure we're on the right side of)?
- and also when creating new tags, how do we tell the Entry Creation page what security level a given tag should be?

Given the numerous things to think about, I do think that #2 should be implemented quickly as a stopgap while we hash #1 out more thoroughly to see how this fairly major transition could go.
