When branching/tagging, the working copy does not change. Which means we
can't just add unversioned files and then do the tagging. That would
leave added files in your working copy which you might want to keep

Also, the branch/tag dialog is already crowded with control where the
user has to enter information. I don't think it would be better if we
would add a file list there too.
