I see, so this is implementing a strict commit by simply depending on
files that have an explicit tag, this sounds great. That's basically all
I needed. Many thanks! (I very much hope those options wheren't in the
pre4 docs, or I overlooked or misunderstood them sorry)

so it sounds like the only difference between this and the strict commit
I had in mind, is that the import automatically should explicit tag all
the files, maybe there's already a way to tweak that too (certainly it
can be scripted and the import aren't frequent so it's not a big deal)
