Hmm...  Seems like switching to --etags-include would just break GNU etags.

% etags --etags-include
etags: unrecognized option `--etags-include'
        Try `etags --help' for a complete list of options.

-i FILE, --include=FILE
        Include a note in tag file indicating that, when searching for
        a tag, one should also consult the tags file FILE after
        checking the current file.
