The new Exclusions option in V6 is quite nice.

The following works:

Plot[Tan[x], {x, -3 \[Pi], 3 \[Pi]}, Exclusions -> Cos[x] == 0]

However, in view of the Exclusions Help page:

"Exclusions -> Automatic excludes all subregions where discontinuities are 
found in functions being plotted. The discontinuities can involve either 
finite or infinite jumps in function values."

I don't understand why the following fails.

Plot[Tan[x], {x, -3 \[Pi], 3 \[Pi]}, Exclusions -> Automatic]
