[issue3051] hg id makes no distinction between a list of tags and a tag with spaces

New submission from luca_ing <luca at ingianni.eu>:
If I use hg id -t, I get my tags as a list separated by spaces. This is all
well and good, except that spaces are valid characters inside a tag name.
Thus, it becomes impossible for me to distinguish whether I'm looking at a
single tag or at a series of tags.
I propose (perhaps as an option, in order not to break existing scripts) to
use a different separating character. Possibly the colon (:), as it is
illegal in tags.
