The tag roller is a very special feature for one specific purpose. Back then before 0.15.0 release, when I had just added tagging, I faced a task to tag lots of hardware with the tag of the datacenter each piece was placed in. So I quickly made this helper, used it and never returned to it again. It is still there to help people upgrading from 0.14.x versions (if they need this and know, how to use it). I don't intend to develop this approach further, but instead I want to implement a tree of "locations" and make all assets inherit additional tags from the location they belong to (and all parent locations in turn). This way the relation already existing in the database ("A" is contained in "B", which is contained in "C") wouldn't have to be repeated once more in a different way (tags "B" and "C" assigned to asset "A"). I've been designing different aspects of this for considerable time, but the implementation of this won't be started till 0.17.x is released and stabilised. That's what we are trying to work on at the moment.
