I think tagmanager needs to be able to search as well as insert, so
its a bit of a balancing act

Personally I would change it to use a balanced binary tree like GTree.
 That should give good search and reasonable insert capability.  But
no guarantees of performance improvement until it is done.

But someone has to brave the tagmanager code :)
