If memory serves, Hg allows any characters *except* newline and colon
in tags. (Hmmm: could I create a tag with control chars in it? That
would be nutty.) So *that* precise bug won't happen in fast-exports
of Hg repos. But yeah, I guess it's the responsibility of exporters
to ensure that the stream they generate conforms to the fast-import
grammar. That certainly counts as a spanner in the interoperability
