Emacs itself has 144 tags, while I have about 16 branches.
So for me at least, for this project, that's 90% clutter and 10% things
I might actually want to complete.

All Emacs tags start with "emacs-", so if you just input any other character and press TAB, you won't see the tags.

For my gdb checkout I have 32 branches and there are 636 tags, so the
ratio is even worse there -- about 5% useful things.

I think we should consider whether it's likely to be a problem, and not just reject the unlikely options. Because other people's workflows can be different.

And I do anticipate having to check out a particular release version, someday.

Further, like Artem reminded us, we already have a revisions completion table. So the attached patch seems preferable to me. WDYT?
