I have numerous projects that follow roughly the same to-do list. But they do vary in complexity, so I don't particularly want to create a template task with subtasks.
What I'd like to be able to do is import tasks with a tag set, then search for tasks with this tag, clear it and assign the matched tasks as subtasks to a parent.

all tagged with "unparented"
I import them (or a varying list of tasks) all tagged with "unparented". On import, I search for "unparented", untag them and assign them as subtasks to parent task "client x". (This is what I don't think Toodledo lets me do at present-- am I wrong?)
Then for the next client, I'd prepare a new list of subtasks and do the same.
The list of subtasks is large enough that I'm using a short Python script to generate the XML for importing into Toodledo.
