It's not necessary -- since val-tags is just a cache, it would be safe
to just delete it regardless.  Of course, the first thing that needs to
be done is to add some kind of locking for the val-tags file since there
isn't any right now and the more we update it the better the chance of
it getting corrupted by simultaneous updates.
