Hi Eric,

It's a bad practice to duplicate functions from other packages. At least
maybe you could enclose the definition in a (eval-after-load 'org ...)
construct and provide org--tag-add-to-alist only if it is not defined.
That way you will also be able to provide a message recommending an
upgrade to a more recent org-mode.

Deus
