Would love to have the function added to SublimeText PlainTasks to add a tag for the project name when marking done.

I tried:
set projectname to project make tag with properties {name:projectname}

but I just get an error:
Can’t make project into type rich text.
-1700

I'm sure someone more talented at Applescript could format the project name correctly?

Note: I tried to incorporate this script but I ended up down the same rabbit hole: http://www.hogbaysoftware.com/wiki/GetProjectTag
