Can just create a .hgtags_historic that has the full tag list so if
someone wants to do historic tag data mining they can just replace the
.hgtags to get the historic tags.

mm that gives me an idea for a HG plugin to be able to set a tag as
historic so it removes it from the .hgtags to .hgtags_historic and
some bindings to be able to use historic tags just like normal tags
(but ensure it is explicit to look in historic eg --historic)
