The good thing is that they will be sorted according to there usage.
Also try to use mod-o to get a menu for unknown tags ;)
But perhaps I'll implement mod-i to get a menu for all programs.

I have implemented pressing mod-` or an to high number to give you an
remembering menu for viewnames.

I think of tag more as view for a special task, not as numbers that
could changes their task. I don't want look through all the tags, where
did I start to programming, I just have a tag rii or rii.dbg and know
what they are doing. (Perhaps I'll ignore \..* for tagnames so rii and
rii.dbg get the same menu/path). So in combination with cdtag and the
menus that will be better as numbers, imho.
But you still can edit the wmiirc file.
