Sorry for the late posting, but maybe this will still help. 

You can browse all tags (including duplicates) of all tags tables, complete
against them, and visit their source definitions, using Icicles
multi-command `icicle-search-tag'. Your minibuffer input filters the source
files to search, as well as the set of matching tags. Matching can use
regexps.

`icicle-search-tag' thus combines the functionality of standard commands
‘find-tag’ (`M-.’) to find a tag, ‘tags-loop-continue’ (`M-,’) to find
another matching tag, ‘tags-apropos’ to list all tags that match a regexp,
and ‘list-tags’ to show all tags (definitions) in a given source file.
