[Haskell-cafe] hasktags - etags backend, any reason to not remove function arguments from tag files?

Hi list,

hasktags -e generates lines containing the function arguments. For

  f0 foo\x7f5,6

The "foo" is the function arg, not the keyword to be tagged.

Emacs still finds  f0, but it does not show it in tab completion using
m-x find-tag ..

I don't use Emacs myself. That's why I want to ask whether this is
intention or a bug.

The fix is trivial: use "name" of FoundThing instead of 
"concat (take (token + 1) $ spacedwords fullline)"

Is there any reason to keep current behaviour?
