Maybe this goes back to Rafal's comment, there seems to be value in the
parser to recognize tags people could be responding with, and amending
them to the patch, but we would not really care about having these
additional tags displayed, along with their patch count in the patch
list view.

Would it be more acceptable if the view and parsing were a little more
independent here?
