After reading this thread I did the same and came up with something near
identical. However, I don't like the behaviour of selecttag() when more
then one tag is selected: The prev/next of the first tag is selected in
addition to all other tags and these are sweeped by multiple next's.

In my patch selecttag() (or shiftview() as I called it) does nothing
when multiple tags are selected, because there is no sane prev/next.
