The time stamps we're talking about are *in* the revision history.
We do all checkins to all files with the same timestamp in the same

If you thought that we were talking about on disk timestamps, that's
way too fragile but these are fine.

(Logical tag 1.XXXX)

is in each file's checkin comments and the 1.XXXX is the ChangeSet file's
rev for that changeset.

That means that *all* files get tags. There would be 8300 x 15,000 files
times sizeof(tag). That's too big.
