I wonder if it may be possible to create a journal of all the operations on tags: a file where all the changes are registered, with a timestamp. Two benefits: - going through the history to undo mistakes - being able to build a diff of two journals in order to synchronize db on multiple hosts A drawback may be to slow down the changes on tags, since we add one more write each time a tag is added or removed.
