In general I prefer to run with this setting turned off because I
frequently view log files that are being written so. So I enabled
check-modtime only for tagsmode files in my vilerc.

The problem is that during development I may (re)generate the tags file
several times. It seems that in order for check-modtime to have effect
I need to switch to the tags buffer, then I'm prompted to reload it.

I think I'm looking for a more convenient solution where each time I
attempt to jump to a tag the modtime on the tags file is checked and
it's silently reloaded in the background.

Does such a feature exist?
