You could do this entirely in the public bindings too could you not?
Something like (untested):

def collect_tags(db, query):
    tags = set()
    for msg in db.messages(query):

anyway, i guess the internal APIs you use won't change before your
patchset here lands so this doesn't matter much.

Thanks for contributing this!  I never aimed for full parity because I
didn't feel like making the API decisions for APIs I had no need to use
myself.  But it's great when people needing things can add it!
