Sorry for being unclear. Not quite like toggle. I mean when you press a
tag key it does the normal thing (tags = newtag or whatever), but then
if you press more tag keys before you release any of them it adds them
to the selection (like tags |= newtag). So if you mash a key combo like
MOD-1-2 and then release, it selects 1 and 2. Likewise with tagging

Whats this about previous tags? I found something fitting that description
in the source but I can't figure out why it's done like that or where it gets used.
Is there some 'previous selection' function somewhere? If not, why is that
ugliness in there?
