For example, the code related to the various LLVM binary utilities like llvm-readobj/llvm-objcopy/llvm-symbolizer etc is all contained within llvm/tools, and wouldn't have their own tag, or even one closely related ("llvm" would be the tag they'd come under, which is... less than useful). Separate tags for each tool (possibly with some shared ones for tools which are broadly aliases like llvm-objcopy/llvm-strip and llvm-readelf/llvm-readobj etc) would certainly help me. Bugzilla already has most of these.

I agree with you that my list is not fine-grained enough.  I just think it would
be better to add tags as we go rather than copying the current list from bugzilla
and have a lot of tags that we don't need.  However, if you think having tags
for the tools would be useful, I would be fine with adding those initially.
Can you write a list of all the specific tags you would like.
