If the simple warning isn't enough, can making the tagged revision public  
be deferred to when the tag creating changeset is pushed?

My workflow is to push to a non publishing repo regularly, tag a build  
occasionally, sanity test, and release.  Once I found a bug and needed to  
amend + evolve, and redo the build, which had its own issue [1].  If  
tagging instantly made it public, there wouldn't be any easy way to tell  
what was actually in the wild.  Even outgoing to the non publishing repo  
may not indicate that, if it is holding the draft revisions.


(I guess I should resubmit this patch, because even if tagging makes  
something instantly public, it can be forced back to draft and cause the  
issue in the local repo.  I just wasn't sure if Pierre-Yves' concern about  
tag caching was sufficiently addressed.)
