Re: tag limits?

We use nearly the same tagging mechanism.
I wrote a shell 'script' continuously tagging a file via pserver with an
increasing tag number.
The tagging process did not slow down after 6000 tags or more, when I
interrupted the script.

The behaviour when checking out or updating with a specific tag is
cvs has to search the ,v files for the appropriate string. 
Unless you have zillions of tags it should be ok.
