No, there is currently no ftag command.

fsnap and fseed works together to save the current state of your forest
(fsnap) and restore it later on (fseed). Both those command works in
combination with a snapshot file. That one is created by fsnap, and read
by fseed. A snapshot file only represent the state on the forest
including the list of the embedded trees, their current revision and
their associated path (to be able to fpull, fpush from a snapshot file).

The following commands show the usage of such a file:

$hg fsnap > current.snapshot

[hack a bit, commit, update, whatever ...]

$ hg fseed current.snapshot # after that command the forest state is the
same as when saved during fsnap

For a (very poor) documentation, you can always look a the
ForestExtension page on the wiki ...
