Keeping Things Separate.

It would be fairly simple to toggle between 2 or more databases just by pointing to different files. The only other issue might be when syncing with another device, THINGS would have to check that your are syncing with the same database, but even a checkbox asking "which of the following databases would you like to sync: Home, Work, MyJobJar" etc.
I'm so weary of having my personal mixed with my professional, I'm currently moving the datafile to a hidden folder and then recreating a new "work only" file. It's a shame, but I need to get a better grip on my professional tasks and will not restore my personal tasks until THINGS let's us separate them OR I find an app that will.
