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

there are other reasons too.

i could have an automatic pull (or push whatever) on a machine (or a
build machine) which results in a moving tip. my build machine might
want to create or move tags like "last known good".

in mozilla land, it takes *hours* to determine if a changeset is good,
during which time many other changesets arrive in the repo.

I'm not opposed to supporting a -f, however i worry that it might do
the wrong thing here. -f is a rather brute force approach to a problem
and can potentially make it possible for people trying to ignore one
problem to accidentally ignore another more serious problem.
