Right, but what I think Braden (and I) would expect by the principle of
least surprise is that "make tag" should *first* check whether any files
are locally modified, and refuse to run the "cvs tag" command until all
locally modified files were committed.

Otherwise it creates unnecessary incrementing of the spec file or nasty
"-F" contortions.  I will file a bug about that if there isn't one
already when I get a chance later.
