I don't think it's a problem.  I just looked at a project of my own
and I've got .hgtags in there as well.  It appears to be an artifact
of converting an existing repository to hg by using "tailor".  Tailor
generates .hgignore automatically in revision 0 and uses that
particular style of matching expression within.  My project's revision
0 .hgignore looks just like tinycc's except it ignores .svn instead of

Note that despite being in .hgignore, the .hgtags file _is_ under
revision control, as can be seen by doing "hg log .hgtags".  Assuming
you use "hg tag" to add tags, they'll get committed immediately and
the fact that "hg status" ignores the file is a non-issue.
