Here is another one.

`tags-major-mode-sensitive' customisation allows to specify if `etags'
package should be sensitive on a major mode. If so, it looks only for
files with the names matching entries of `auto-mode-alist' of the major mode.
It does not hit performance that much, if it is a problem, making a
simple assumption about last search would be sufficient (however I've
checked it on the Emacs code base, and seems to run OK).

BTW: Integrating etags with ede projects might be a good idea.
