Umm.. no.. If you sort the subscriber base along this criteria (after
sorting out the digest members) then you need to send 2 messages.  One to
the users with the tag, one to the users without the tag.

I am leaning toward doing it this way in Listar rather than under the
per-user modification which would require one message per user.
It's a bit more complex in the code, but MUCH nicer on the mail server.
