Per file is a good idea.

 I'm always surprised what users can overlook, but if we notify them,
it doesn't matter how unobservant they are :)

Also Matthew's perceived slowness with lots of tags loaded needs
checking, is it reloading them all the time (as Colomban seemed to
suggest) or does the symbol table used by tagmanager have O(1),
O(log), O(N) or worse performance.
