"Tags never get removed from val-tags."

Why? If I delete a tag, I I want to, well, delete it!

Only because it would be a lot of overhead to traverse the entire repository to make sure that _ALL_ files are really missing the tag.

In other words, just because you executed `cvs tag -d whatevertag' in a workspace checked out from project1 does not guarantee that the tag does not exist in project2.

Since tag deletion is considered a relatively rare operation (as well it should be), no one has ever bother to write the code for the expensive, complete tag search that would be necessary to determine if the tag is really completely gone and should really be deleted from val-tags.
