(Ugh.) My bad. Will fix.

I was thinking the top-level namespace would be "symbols", because we are not necessarily working with a single symbol.  Secondary namespace would be "tag", since this enum is very specific to tags.  Then, the actions are whether to "include none (of tagged symbols)" or "include only symbols tagged as default".

I'm fine with your suggestion, though, and will submit a new patch incorporating that soon.
