Yes, it had bugs. It's fixed now in v2.0 hg. (Backport to v1.2 would be
too invasive.)

Yes, it's valid. There should be a new feature to add support for
per-user flags. The main index must be shared between all users (which
would also contain shared flags), and then there could be another
per-user index with private flags. I haven't much thought about how to
do this yet.
