It should be quite easy -- though it won't still be a vanilla CTags of
course, my own isn't either (yet?).

Well, tagmanager needs to know all tags to perform e.g. scope completion
beyond file's boundaries.  And for search too, it would need us to pass
it everything, or to perform a search on each document's tags and then
merge the result.  Doesn't sound sensible at a first glance, but maybe
I'm missing something.
