Bug Description

The upgrade message when trying to tag in a bound branch is a little less helpful
than it could be.

trunk$ bzr tags
trunk$ bzr tag TESTTAG
bzr: ERROR: Tags not supported by BzrBranch5('bzr+ssh://hostname/whatever/trunk/'); you may be able to use bzr upgrade --dirstate-tags.
trunk$ bzr upgrade --dirstate-tags
bzr: ERROR: The branch format Bazaar-NG meta directory, format 1 is already at the most recent format.

It should suggest

bzr upgrade --dirstate-tags "bzr+ssh://hostname/whatever/trunk/"

See http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=445937 for where this confused
someone.

Thanks,

James
