I'm glad you think so too!

Indeed :)  The tag syntax is controlled by two command-line flags:
--prefix=... and --suffix=...

It can be difficult to get the desired strings past both the shell and
the regular expression compiler (although that last bit is changing...
Josh Hoyt sent a patch that switches to basic string inspection, which
should make this much simpler to use.)
