I don't believe there is at the moment. But the tags are *only*
recorded in the filename, so it's perfectly OK to simply rename the
wheel file manually after it's created.

It would be nice to file a feature request for this on the wheel
tracker (https://bitbucket.org/pypa/wheel) as well, if there's nothing
there already, so we don't forget.
