this is useful for kdelibs, and is why we have the kdelibs snapshot in
branches/ that is regularly synced over at known-good points.
for applications, it's not useful at all. just skip the application in
question during compile or fix it. tags simply allow one to bypass fixing
things that ought to be fixed (or removed from the build for the time being
if it's a long term non-compilable breakage); and if you really want to do
avoid fixing things, you can do that already by removing the offending subdir
from the Makefile.
if you are hacking on the application that isn't building, then you *need* to
be working on the most recent revision of that codebase. elsewise your patch
may end up not applying well at all once you update to a new tag. so tags
aren't useful here either.
just when do you think they would be useful? i don't see the point of this =)
