	ex/vi synopsis for tag useage is incorrect
	man 1 vi, look at tagprev, tagpop

The patch below reflects reality. "tagpop" and "tagprev" are clearly
-not- unambiguous until *after* the 'p', so it's debatable whether
the shortcuts should be to the shortest unambiguous length ("tagpo"
and "tagpr"), or left as-is. That discussion is not addressed here.
