Hmmm... I think what you should do is copy it with a new name and change the bit at the very top of the plugin that calls it's own name. Somewhere in there it will say "moretags_plugin does something to class" or something like that. That particular bit needs to match the file name and the folder name. That should be a good clue as to how to simply duplicate it. After that you would only need to change the details you want to change - not all the various variable names.
So like folder "moretags_plugin" has file "_moretags.plugin.php" and a line with "moretags_plugin extends blah blah" in it becomes "mymoretags_plugin" folder with "_mymoretags.plugin.php" file in it and a line that now says "mymoretags_plugin extends blah blah".
Then upload the new version and cross your fingers and see what you get.
BTW I've been way too busy with a stupid form (that does a really cool trick) and haven't played with a big backlog of issues with plugins. If you let me know what kind of details you're looking for I'll see about adding them to a "next gen" plugin. For example I hate how the div buttons show up if you use them or not, and how you can't give them a custom name. Those details will be fixed in the next release. And maybe stuff like adding your own colors or replacing existing ones with your own. And if I can figure out how a method to do what you want: add something specific to the look and feel of your own blog.
