Please describe the use case where you needed to invoke
tags-loop-continue.  I think we made an effort to eliminate these use
cases (by providing alternatives that are built on top of xref), but
maybe some slipped through the cracks.

Like Dmitry, I use it all the time.  You really cannot avoid using it,
since, unlike find-tag, xref-find-definitions doesn't push a mark
storing the place where you invoked "M-.", so the only reasonable way
of getting back is with "M-,".
