In any case, branch/timestamp pairs correctly identify the versions to be
tagged.  If the user specifies no branch, assume the trunk.  If the user
specifies no timestamp, assume the moment the command was invoked.

But I can understand Larry's reluctance to implement this because RCS
provides no equivalent capability.  (RCS can apply a tag to a version
identified explicitly or by label, or to the top of a branch, but not
to a version on a branch given a timestamp.)
