WooCommerce: Allow CSV Product Export By Tag

Ok, this is a little hacky and pretty manual, but it happened to me in the past that the inbuilt WooCommerce CSV product export was just not enough.

Of course, you could find a dynamic way of doing that, but for now we’ll keep this manual and hardcoded into the PHP function. Enjoy!
