My profile was migrated autmaticaly from SM1.5 to SM2.0
Now I not see only 5 standart tags for mail in any tagging selectors.
More that 20 of my labels are lost.

I have 6 mail accounts on this profile, one of it are pop3, others are IMAP.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. deinstall seamonkey 1.5
2. install seamonkey 2.0
3. start profile manager, delete empty default profile
4. close profile manager
5. start profile manager
6. choose "import profile from older version(not remember text exactly)
7. wait for importing
8. start seamonkey 
9. look into mail->view bar->tags, or click to any mail, then click right mouse button->tags

Actual Results:  
see only "generic" tags

Expected Results:  
see all previously existed tags

Version: unspecified → Trunk
Tag is defined by next entry in prefs.js.
  - mailnews.tags.$labelN.tag              (Predefined tags)
  - mailnews.tags.User_Define_tag_name.tag (User defined tags)
And When locally defined mail folder, tag data is saved in X-Mozilla-Keys: header.
(Q1) Are tags defined in migrated prefs.js?
(Q2) (for POP3 or "Local Folders" or IMAP folder of "offline use" option)
     Does X-Mozilla-Keys: exist in mail source?
     Does all label/tags are saved in X-Mozilla-Keys: ?
Taking - we're migrating mailnews.labels.* (the old style) but not mailnews.tags.*

This adds migration of the mailnews.tags alongside the mailnews.labels prefs (we need both for older versions).
