Interesting.  It does indeed work.  However, one problem I have seen
is that it seems to make updates *very* inefficient.

If I use star-merge or the set-tree-version trick, updates happen many
times faster than if I use tag.  With tag, it appears to check out two
entire trees (one of which is already in my pristine cache), which is
a very time-consuming process for this.  I don't know why this is.

Incidentally, these are all branches in the same archive, so the space
savings with tag as opposed to merge look good.
