Not via cvs commands. Tagging takes roughly the same amount of time as
other operations. If it seems too slow, try a faster machine. In my
case, the entire file system is hosted via NFS, so I usually use a
system with a local disk for tagging. That speeds things up immensely.
Even though tagging is done on the repository machine, the communication
back to the client slows things down. Perhaps redirecting stdout to
/dev/null or a log could help.
