I find it too cluttered - the tag display before tag-used-indicators
came along was almost perfect - very clean and informative. Now it has
gone too far in the eye-candy direction, in my opinion. Pretty, but it
detracts from function.

What about a plain over-bar for tag-used? Better than my original
thought of an underline, in that the underline tends to blend with the
border, but an overbar stands out against the screen-edge.

Mostly I don't care a lot about tag-used indicators - they're just
sometimes-useful instead of continually-useful. For the bulk of the
time, I don't care whether a non-selected tag is used or not - I just
want a subtle confirmation of whether a non-visible window has closed or
opened yet. What I mean to say is that I do like having them, but I
want them to be subtle. :-)
