If I checkout a module into my sandbox using a tag, I get only those files that are tagged, of course.

Now, my remote user with limited bandwidth wants to make changes to one or more files and commit those changes, so he has to update and remove sticky tags.

The problem is that he now gets deluged with all the files in the module, tagged or not, which bugs him 'cos he has limited bandwidth.

Well, if he's going to modify files, then before he commits he really *does* need to get the latest version of all files in the repository. Otherwise, you run the risk of introducing incompatible changes: he might change something in file A, you might change something in file B, and your changes will be incompatible.
