It's easier to code, you don't have to worry about erasing things or
figuring out when you can get away with not redrawing everything.

With the new code, I have to "remember" where stuff is, and erase or
overwrite stuff. This adds to the size of the gui_list structures, etc.

And as I wrote, I got stuck on tagcache using the same list (as I use
the gui_list address (the pointer value) to figure out if I'm still on
the list I was on before.
