[Haskell-cafe] [ANN] codex - generate tags file from dependencies

I have finally updated the tool to use `hasktags` by default as after more
in depth testing I realize that the quality is much better in term of
dealing with namespaces.

In fact I made the tagger command fully configurable (with template for
hasktags and ctags), the tool now store as well a 'hash' of the dependency
graph in the tags file to avoid recomputing it when there is no need (that
easy to integrate the tool as hook).
