[PATCH 0 of 1 RFC] tag: abort if not at a branch head

Per previous discussion[1], this patch represents one approach to helping
users to learn not to make a tag on anything but a branch head. I was
ambivalent about aborting and requiring -f, vs. simply issuing a warning when
tagging creates a new head (which could simply be rolled back). If the latter
approach is more desirable, I will implement it and re-send.
