Bug Description

When you edit a task, the «add a tag» button drop down a list of unused tag, and when you click on a tag, it add it to the task.

This menu should be :
* alphabetically sorted, to find your tag faster
* a list of check-box elements, so you can as easily remove as add a tag

Moreover in gtg 0.1.1 it seems that adding a tag doesn't remove it from the list until you close the window an open up a new one. This could be fixed in the same time : when the user click the check-box, it add/remove from the task and toggle the check-box state.

With a check-box element, you see immediately what tag is already applied or not.

Example of a sorted tag check-box list menu :
✓ Boring
✓ Foo

It makes sense and I think that this feature would be helpful.
