The idea, I think, was to send this info to the CVS subscribers
(too), because they can tag their in-sync-copy at that point
(almost) automatically.

But why not use the "taginfo" hook for this purpose? The taginfo file

# The "taginfo" file is used to control pre-tag checks.
# The filter on the right is invoked with the following arguments:
# $1 -- tagname
# $2 -- operation "add" for tag, "mov" for tag -F, and "del" for tag -d
# $3 -- repository
# $4->  file revision [file revision ...]
# A non-zero exit of the filter program will cause the tag to be aborted.
# The first entry on a line is a regular expression which is tested
# against the directory that the change is being committed to, relative
# to the $CVSROOT.  For the first match that is found, then the remainder
# of the line is the name of the filter to run. [...]

That would be a place to add a "About to tag...." mailer script!
