There are some way to do it:

1) Use grepprg variable.

   But in this method, you cannot use tag stack.
   See '6. Vim using global' <>
   in GLOBAL tutorial for the details.

2) Patch vim with global vim support.

   In this method, you can use tag stack.
   But supported version of vim is just 6.0o. I cannot maintain this patch
   up to date. So, I recommend above grepprg variable than this method.
   See 'Patch for vim to use GLOBAL' <>
   for the details.

3) Wait for tagprg variable being supported.

   I have sent a request to the author of vim to support 'tagprg' and
   'tagprogonce' variables like Elvis. If it is done, you can use vim
   like elvis. See '5. Elvis using global'
   <ttp://> for the details.
   My request is already included in TODO list of vim

If you have some time, I recommend you to add stack facility to grepprg.
You will be able to use grepprg variable with stack facility as an alternative
for tagprg.

Good luck!
