I agree and I think that's the way we go (yeah, right, we, I didn't ever
contribute a single line of code). I think this function should also
reset the currently viewed tag to the default value of seltags, which
would be orthogonal (in a user's view) to reapplying the rules (say:
opera is *out* of my view by default).
