Removing tags sounds fine with me. Renaming them not so; I fail to see
the point.

These could go, IMO. Anything that's there for merge maintenance can
go, IMO.

This one can go as well. In general, I propose to remove all tags which
aren't copies of trunk or some branch (i.e. tagging only a part of the
Python source tree). I suppose hg can't represent that adequately,
anyway (they often come from CVS, and even CVS can only barely represent
tags that cover only one or a few files).
