Subject: Re: Automatic global tag list?

I just want to keep tag names consistent across files and I want to know what tags are in use in all files as I add a tag. However, it's too tedious to manually maintain org-tag-alist because I use a large and arbitrary number of tags at any given time.

It would also be great if there was a way to list all tags in global use. (I'm thinking something like a tag cloud here.)

BTW, where is the documentation? I'm using orgmode 7.03, perhaps it's not documented there?
