Exactly: multiple tags can't be prevented.  And monotone does cope
with them.  It's just that they don't work in quite the way you might

::grin:: you mean that it copes with them by raising an error?  Must
be some strange new definition of "cope" that I was previously unaware

Thinking about this some more, I do see your dilemma.  If the t:
selector implemented the last tag of that name then you would let
yourself in for some unpleasant behaviour, because someone else could
have used the same tag.  t:tag could mean different things before and
after a sync.   Of course, you could specify both the tag name and the
author, and presumably that would be safe ... but for monotone to deal
with that would be too much magic for me.

It rather looks as if tags are only useful to avoid you having to
remember hashes; and to mark the points where the code leaves the VCS.
