Sigh. And of course the version I posted was broken. I put a fixed version at;a=blob_plain;f=tagdir;hb=HEAD

You might, or might not also be interested in;a=blob_plain;f=gitmuch;hb=HEAD

which is the beginnings of how to keep tags in git (for syncing
between machines).  Right now the notmuch restore step is the
bottleneck, but Carl apparently knows how to speed 'notmuch restore'
