If I do tagging, will it be used?

I was thinking of the pre-approval backlog that you mentioned. But
okay, if there's no backlog, then the new tags will end up in
/var/lib/apt/lists/*Packages the next time I do an apt-get update on
an Unstable machine. (Or, fortunately, the next time cron-apt does
it on my machine with Etch+Sid in its sources.list.)
But is there a way of browsing those tags, or do I need to download
them to /var/cache/debtags as well? (I assume that gives the same
set of "approved" tags?)
And is there a way of seeing what has changed in the tags list,
other than stashing private backups and diffing?
