I've been thinking about tags for a long time - it's just had lower
priority than other things. Please start by opening a ticket in
Lighthouse where you give some examples of how tags can be entered.
I'd also like to see examples of how you'd like to tell Cucumber what
tags you want to run, and whether you want any other kind of output.

Let's continue the discussion in Lighthouse. It's great that you're
volunteering to implement it!
