The current implementation of tag selection works well with a small
number of tags. I have 6 tags myself.

How many tags do you use? Remember you don't need to use the characters
in the tag string. For example you can assign 0-9 for the most used

Another solution is to reimplement this using ido i.e. it requires users
to type the whole string but uses ido to narrow down the selection
