Given then - howabout an option in =tagging-method that lets you choose
the tag; something like

        tag-regex arch-tag:

Could be:

        tag-regex src-uuid-tag:
        tag-regex bk-tag:|arch-tag:|src-uuid-tag:

(for loonies :O)

This would allow a) migrations from bk'd source, b)  people to think of
the tag as _data_ and not CM meta-data.

Oh and it would be backward compatible.
