Backgrounding it should work, just as for log ('command args &' - see the
Cederqvist on keeping a checked out copy: ).  You'll be creating a
race condition if you're not telling tag exactly which revisions should be
tagged however.  Not one that would probably be encountered too often, but
you are.
