We've made a consistent and conscious effort to switch from the
tags-loop-continue UI to the xref UI.  The only command that still
needs that and doesn't have an xref-based equivalent is tags-search.
If we add such an equivalent command, the issue with
tags-loop-continue will only arise if the user uses the obsolete
commands (in which case they will probably rebind the keys anyway).

When all of these commands have xref UI, the M-, binding to
tags-loop-continue is no longer necessary because the command is
unnecessary.
