":e test.hs" overwrites "test.hs" with emacs tags

This is not really a bug but it can be confusing (and lead to loss of work) for programmers that use both Hugs and GHCi. In Hugs, :e filename opens filename in an editor. In GHCi 6.5 :e filename (short for :etags filename) creates an Emacs tags file, overwriting filename.
- Use a different command to create emacs tags
- Make the command fail if the file already exists
