You mention etags so I guess you refer to "tags" in the old sense. But
in case you mean the modern, hyped tags, you might want to test a
little experiment I did some weeks ago:

http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/FileProps

With it you can add meta data about files and later use that data to
find files in different ways. You can for example tag files that you
use in a certain project, with some keyword, even if they are placed
in different directories.
