It could be wrapped; I was referring to the functionality.

the function we are talking about is:

So looking recursively inside subdirs is wrong.

The TAGS file contains a list of file:line:column (among other things).
In this context, we only care about the file names.

That list of file names is the source code for the current project (for
some loose definition of 'project').

So the function we are defining is 'goto-file-in-project', with the user
prompted for the file name.

In ada-mode, the definition of 'file in project' is the combination of
compilation-search-path with ada-spec-suffixes, ada-body-suffixes. I
believe EDE projects are similar.
