I think this is a good idea, as long as `make tags' is cheap, i.e., as
long as it only recalculates tags for the files which have changed.
This will require changes to etags as I described above, which Tom
says he's implemented.

Of course, the external command to run should be configurable, so
people could just call "find *.c | etags -", or use make if they
require more complicated dependency tracking, etc.
