can't tag module w/ PCL-CVS in Emacs 21.2

I am unable to tag a release using Emacs 21.2.1 PCL-CVS buffer using
the 't' command.  I've also tried to do this using a C-x v s (version
control snapshot) w/o success.

The PCL-CVS documentation suggests that it is a replacement for the VC
frontend (when using CVS).  This leads me to three questions:

1. What must I do to get the PCL-CVS *cvs* buffer's 't' command to tag
   a 'snapshot'?  Below are the details.

2. Does it make sense to use the VC front-end instead of PCL-CVS
   some/most of the time when working with a CVS backend?

3. Are there any plans to merge the two frontends?

...showing that the cvs command was supposedly sent.
However, placing cursor on 'file.txt' then pressing '+'
to view tag tree shows only prior tags done outside Emacs.
In fact, doing it at a bash prompt thus...

$ cvs tag dumbcvs1

...then viewing the tag tree for file.txt shows that tagging
via the bash prompt works...
