Very good point, but at least tagging is its own thing.

What "recent changes" are you referring to? Surely

id`abc` === id`abc`

with that version of `id` was always `false`? You can't reuse the
array from the first call to call the tag function the second time,
what if the function modified the array? (Presumably if it *is* a
change, that's *why* it was changed... :- ) )
