Note to everyone else: this is a TKinter question.

Tags are attached to text ranges, in the Text widget.  If you delete all 
of the text in the widget, all of the text ranges will go poof, so 
therefore all of the tag attachments will likewise go poof.

This will not delete any tags that have been defined for the widget, 
though, although why you'd want to do that is an open question.
