Thanks for your original plugin - it made me look at the problem in a
slightly different way.

I work with something similar...

gproject shares the tags of all open projects. You can manually
deselect "generate tags for all project files" in the project
properties dialog for those projects whose tags you don't wish to be

Not quite - it's semi-automatic. Your plugin does this completely
automatically. If you wish this to happen in my plugin, you have to
press the "reload all" button in the sidebar. Then it automatically
opens the projects of all the open files and selects the current
project based on the current file. The reason why it isn't completely
automatic as you did it is that it's slow for big projects and
switching between two files coming from different projects was too

It kind of starts complicating things. But as tags are shared, isn't
this enough for you?
