Rules that act on events (e.g. on adding a task, if the tag is 'work', make the location 'work')

I love RTM and especially the Android app is terrific.

One thing I could use is rules applied to my tasks. An example rule could be:

On adding task
if 'tag:work'
location:=work

Or to enable tag aliasses,

on adding tag
if 'tag:ps'
tag:=personal
remove tag 'ps'

Another could be
on postponing task
if postponed>2
priority:=priority+1

Possibilities would be endless. It would greatly streamline much of the things I do with RTM. The implementation could start simple with events just happening on adding and editing of a task.

That would be really cool.

Also would be nice if you could have a rule that if a task in a list gets completed it will add a tag to the next task (ie. next action).

That way I could have a project automatically populate its tasks as you do them :).

+1 I just searched for "rules" here in the forum because I think it's an important feature.

Example rules that should apply when I add a task:

* if task name contains 'mom' then tag as 'family'
* if it has tag "staff-meeting" then also tag as 'work'
* if it has tag "vacation" then also tag as 'personal'
etc.

Such rules are very useful and I use them all the time in Gmail. There, most stuff gets filtered and tagged automatically, and it would be great if that were possible in RTM too.
