Unfortunately, that's the only support CVS supplies for keeping track of tag
usage. CVSNT (which is the default back-end for Tortoise CVS, IIUC) _might_
provide additional support, but you're more likely to get a good answer by
asking in a CVSNT mail list.

You can write a script that hooks into taginfo, but unfortunately that will
only help with any tags applied after the script is implemented.
