The reason I can categorize this fast is that the tag selection is a tree with checkboxes. I select an image or images, then click on the appropriate checkboxes, then press a key to move to the next image.
How is this different from how digikam works? This sounds like a perfect description of what you get when you choose "Edit Comments & Tags" from the context menu. You get a persistent window with a big thumbnail of the current image, a text box to write comments in, and a tree view of all your tags with check boxes. Alt-B and Alt-F move you to previous and next image, respectively.
You may be right that kimdaba can't do this (I haven't checked) but I think you should do more research before making sweeping comments like "None of the current Free Software Image Database programs ... meets my needs at the current time". Yeah, I know: there's so many of the damn things and life is short :)
