actually (it's been quite a while since I looked for variants - 1994 - to
find a good version, though at that time, I chose one of them), there's
been more than one program named 'etags' (ditto for tags++).  exuberant
tags is doing what some others do: when invoked by that name, it handles
the corresponding format.
