I may be novice here, but afaik, it's very much simpler to dicover which 
files contain a given tag, than those that are different.

That was excactly the purpose of this RFE.
This would help greatly in that.

I'm sorry, but I dont see any way of automating this without using 
multiple tags and moving them manuarally. Whit this suggestion I could 
relatively simple build any combination of a given baseline and costumer 

With your suggestion, I can only build the baseline / costumer 
combinations that has ben tagged beforehand, ans afaik, manually.
