[uf-discuss] xFolk use question - Using "taggedlink" inside "description" element

Looking at the examples on the wiki page, there is nothing that
precludes a taggedlink inside the description.  Any parser I ever
wrote for this looked for an element with xfolkentry and then
appropriate corresponding elements under that.  How those elements
were nested did not matter?

As Ryan points out, xfolkentry is assumed to denote a container tag
with everything else underneath it.
