Here is what I'm asknig. I have tag name, X. I want to remap key C-]
so that it remembers tag name in some variable b:tag. The I want some other
mapping that will bring me to *next* definition of "last C-]ed" tag.

The ":tnext" command already supports this and jumps to the next
matching tag definition.

You can use the following commands to browse through multiple
matching tags:

I thought the logic can be "check if we are already at some definition of
tag b:tag". If we are, then just to the next definition. But maybe it's not
needed, [to knwo whether we are at the definion", if the next-tag-def
mapping will remember the definition number. Yes, in fact that's all
that's needed. I think I have everything in palce to create the
next-tag-definition mappnig.
