I'm not sure if you'd be able to get everything you want here or not, but Hub (https://hub.github.com) might help you script up finding all PRs with a certain tag (with `hub issue`) and `git am` (with Hub additions to be able to `am` a URL) them into your current branch.

I know Jeff is a big fan of Hub, so I don't know if he's infected this group yet or not. :)

The problem is that the label is a github gui thingy.  There's no easy way to get from the label to the commit, so that it can be cherry-picked. (At least that I know of.)  Github doesn't have a nice cherry-pick utility, so git needs to be used directly.  Scanning labels off a web page, matching them with a commit id, re-typing that into an stg pick command is a lot more work than having a script scan for labels embedded within the commit message.

I'm not going for perfect here, just better.
