Acts_as_attachment and tagging?

hi, i read this:

http://www.johnnysthoughts.com/2006/08/27/ruby-on-rails-using-full-text-search-with-tagging/

does this mean i do not have to install the acts_as_taggable plugin? all
i need to do is something like this is my model class?
acts_as_ferret :field=>[‘name’, :tag_list]

from quick-reading that post, you’ll still need acts_as_taggable to have
your taggings get saved correctly. he just uses aaf to search posts by
tags.

Maybe you could get away with just storing tags in a text field on each
record, and searching this field with ferret - but this way you’ll lose
the possibility do do relational db queries on your tags.

cheers,
Jens
