Considering the relative frequency of those commands, I would have
thought it more convenient to make C-u M-, resume a suspended
`tags-search' or `tags-query-replace', while just M-, resumes whatever
was done last.

So a single C-u M-, would make subsequent M-, switch to tags-search
again, and a single C-u M-. would make subsequent M-, switch to
find-tag again.

In either case, there would be an easy way to switch M-, M-, M-, to go
through the kind of search you prefer at the moment.

C-u M-, does not appear to have any meaning right now.
