      Now you've lost me again. :tag is for jumping to tags, not showing them.

      > The original ':tag XXX' show tags in a seperate window and ask user to select one and jump to it.

      That's not at all what :tag does. Here's the help text:

      :[count]ta[g][!] {ident}
      Jump to the definition of {ident}, using the
      information in the tags file(s). Put {ident} in the
      tag stack. See |tag-!| for [!].
      {ident} can be a regexp pattern, see |tag-regexp|.
      When there are several matching tags for {ident}, jump
      to the [count] one. When [count] is omitted the
      first one is jumped to. See |tag-matchlist| for
      jumping to other matching tags.

      Even :tselect, which DOES show a list, only prints the list to the screen and
      prompts you for input, it does NOT show the list in a separate window.

      I suspect you want behavior like :tselect. If :tag does the same thing for you
      as :tselect, then you probably have the 'cscopetag' option set, so that :tag and
      CTRL-] act like :tjump, which in turn acts like :tselect if there are multiple
      matches. But I'm just guessing here.

      If you do want behavior like :tselect, you can loop over your filtered tag list
      and use an "echo" command to show whatever you want to the user. Then you can
      use the input() function to allow the user to select an entry.

      If you actually want to open a scratch buffer, you can do that too. There are
      many ways to get text into the buffer, you'll just need to figure out how to
      allow the user to select a tag from the buffer. Probably you'll want to set
      buftype=nofile and apply a buffer-local mapping or something.
