If the concern is the amount of screen real-estate that the tags take
up when there are many of them (which is a reasonable concern), I'd
rather just put a single tag icon with "tags..." inside it and arrange
to list all the tags in the diff display pane when the user clicks on
it.  I think that would be better than not showing the tags at all.
