Because I have 12,766 files, and I want to tag all but about 30 of them.  
Working out which 30 is a long and laborious process of checking by hand.  It 
would have been nice if I could have just worried about getting the sandbox to 
a given state and then tagging that state.  

What I'll end up doing is compiling a list of the 30 as I go along, tagging 
everything and then doing something like:

cat badlist.txt | xargs cvs tag -d <tag>

As I said, it's not really a big deal, just a small surprise.
