Real quickly, Gabby, the most I've done with metrical tagging is
* context senstive searching (e.g., "show me all lines that have
  'love' and have 7 metrical feet")
* first-line indices
* count metrical lines taking overlap indicated with part= or
  next=/prev= into account

However, I have some experience just counting syllables in English (a
job I had as an undergrad), and I can say it is quite a complicated
task, even without trying to ascertain which syllable is likely to be
stressed.
