Support for Folders
I think that Calibre supports tag labelling, but what about 'folders'. Such as importing a subdirectories of ebooks. Or creating directory folders in Calibre, to sort your books in. I like keeping my books divided in to subject by folders.

Either Calibre manages ALL internal folders or you don't want Calibre
Calibre uses Tags to flag subjects. You can have N tags and still only 1 copy of the book.
Read the sticky at the top of Library management.

One way to handle this could be to make a copy of all the books using a batch file, and adding the "subject" of the book to the title/filename of the book. You would have to make the batch file yourself, perhaps from a file listing you import to LibreOffice Calc, and then export to a text file.
Exactly how to do this depends on your OS, the directory structure and the current naming standard of the books. It can get messy.
Perhaps: author - title - subject.format
Then when the books are added to calibre you can read the subject of the book from the filename, along with title and author, and use this to create a hierarchical view of the calibre library, ordered by subject.
