affect of large numbers of tags on performance

We use an automated build tool that performs many builds each day. Each time there is a successful build it applies an appropriate tag to our CVS repository. This has been running for a number of months now and on many files there are well over 100 tags - for files that don't change much, all 100 tags are on the same version number. Obviously this tag count is going to simply increase over time.
Does anyone know if we should be concerned about this? How does such a large number of tags affect performance (checkout, commit, tag, log etc)? How does it affect the size of the repository in terms of disk space? Should we be looking to implement a scheme to purge old tags?
