Series fast export/import: handle nested tags, improve incremental exports | expand

Commit Message

Add a new option, --mark-tags, which will output mark identifiers with
each tag object.  This improves the incremental export story with
--export-marks since it will allow us to record that annotated tags have
been exported, and it is also needed as a step towards supporting nested

 	Before processing any input, load the marks specified in
