So, I did. ;-) (In the master branch now.) The format is slightly
different from the proposed one:

	S cogito-0.16rc2   7766e3ba0664
	S cogito-0.17      51392f2dd82a  Poetic cogito-0.17.
	S cogito-0.17rc1   7cb4d8972d5b  Behold, cogito-0.17rc1! Plenty new features and cool stuff.
	% cogito-0.8       f9f0459b5b39
	% cogito-0.9       cc5517b4ea41
	  test             05862786175d

Object IDs are still shown, but abbreviated so they shouldn't get in the
way too much; the full first line is shown in the list output,
untrimmed. The initial flag column denotes signed tags by 'S', "direct
tags" (not pointing to a tag object) by '%' and broken tags by '!'.

P.S.: Also, cg-tag received a lot of improvements in the last two days.
Now features the same cool editor as cg-commit (but only if ran with
-e), -d was renamed to -m (but will stay aliased for quite some time),
cg-tag now also accepts multiple -m options for creating multi-paragraph
descriptions from the commandline, and bunch of other minor stuff was
implemented.

Thanks for the idea,

Right now I am having amnesia and deja-vu at the same time.  I think
I have forgotten this before.
