I think this patch seems quite useful and suggest you should add this
patch to the patches section.

See for instructions about how to commit
your changes to the wiki.

Btw. there are other possibilities to restore the tag state than
persistation to a file. Esp. if your X was restarted your approach
could have weirdo side effects. A better way would be to store the tag
info in a property for each window in unmanage(), which is cleared
during manage() again. This would not lead to such X restart side
