This puts another nail in the coffin of "repositories are just a
storage optimization". Not that that's good or bad; just is.

Erring conservative is a good shot here. Particularly if we're not
storing a history, an overwritten tag is gone for good. I tend to
think we may have to store some history (as John said) to make the
right decision for the simple cases...

Unrelated, but; we otter fallback to revid's too while that's getting
That all to one side, on the tag stuff in general, Yay! 8-}
