Tag them all (whole project).
1) you almost never know when you start fixing a problem ALL the files that
will be affected.
2) when you do a checkout against a normal tag, you only get those files
that have been tagged with the named tag.
3) it is easier, you don't have to figure out what to tag, you just DO
IT(tm) :).

side note:
If your repository contains files that are not used in specific
circumstances, you can use why #2 to have a baseline tag that only gets the
files needed for the circumstance. I have used this to my advantage on a
couple of projects.
