The current means to add a tag into rpmtag.h and deploy through a release can 
take months to accomplish.

The necessary time to add a tag to rpm could be shortened to minutes by using 
the hash of the tag name string (properly canonicalized) within a reserved 
space (like 0x4000000 -> 0x7fffffff).

The obvious default type of the tag as string (or string array) avoids any need 
to coerce integers/octets into a display format, and permits existing header 
retrieval APIs to be used.
