How Do I Make Host Tags Viewable By Everyone

Per billbender's question asked back in 23 Mar...
Was this feature still not added in any of the 4.2.x versions?

Have you seen this topic: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/answers/26585/force-tags-to-be-public-upon-creation ? While the solution isn't publically posted, it sounds like there is a way to do it.

The other option I can think of would be to run a scheduled script that takes the tags.conf file from each Splunk user's directory and merges them into one tags.conf file in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/. Optionally, the script could do some more advanced processing/filtering to only copy specific tags to the /local tags.conf. The downfall here is that Splunk needs to be restarted after the tags.conf file is changed for the changes to be seen.

OK, so you are saying it is still not a feature in the current version, but there are workarounds, albeit messy ones. But aren't they always?
