Is there not a version in WALEdit or on the WAL file that would allow us
distinguish a WALEdit written w/ tags from one w/o?

Could we have two codecs, one that supports tags and another that does not?

My sense going by recent experience is that landing big patches, what w/
review cycles and then stabilization of build post commit, is that the
process always takes way more time than I expect.  You fellas are almost
there -- tags is shaping up nicely -- and you and Anoop are super receptive
and reactive to criticism so it would all likely run faster than usual but
I predict at least another week before it lands -- perhaps too weeks -- and
that is too long for a 0.96 that is already way too late.

Lets get tags into trunk. I can help after this development release and the
release candidate gets posted.  Lets then make a tags-only release on the
heels of 0.96.  As said above, tags is cause enough for a major hbase

Good on you Ram,
