When a file contains tens of tags and a long change history, having to scroll 
back and forth to map the tag names to revisions and log entries isn't fun at 
all.  While perhaps relatively easy, it's certainly much harder than just 
looking at the log entry and seeing all relevant info right there.

I'm not sure if I parse that correctly, but I don't see what actual problems 
the one line (which is already there) causes, whereas two cases by two 
contributors have already been presented that would be negatively affected by 
its removal.
