In general 'tla inventory' replaces 'find' as your tool for working with
your source trees.

tla inventory is a special-purpose find for your source tree.  Think of
it as a "find" with a whole bunch of rules particular to your source
tree, defined by you as your naming conventions.

I couldn't figure out how to make ``tla inventory'' give me a list of all files and directories that did not have tags but I wanted to have tags (i.e. during initial import). Specifically, it would not do so and recurse. I'm sure I tried every variety of options.

        Also, when I want to edit something in there, it's slightly less
convenient for me to type, ``vi ./\<shift>{[tab]'' than ``vi ./.a[tab]''

Broken shell.  Which ?

tcsh, which is not broken, I just don't trust it to do what I mean if I say ``vi {[tab]'' It does seem to escape it properly and all that, but since { is a special character, I usually escape it myself.

        User visibility I don't think is as important.  I know what stuff is
handled by arch because I keep my sources in a tree I can manage.

It becomes a lot more important as visual tree-root cue when you start
working with configurations.

Well, on one hand, I don't believe the visual cue is important, but on the other hand, it's inconsistent. This is my point:

dustin2wti:/tmp/temp/manual 585% ls -l "{arch}"
ls: {arch}: No such file or directory
dustin2wti:/tmp/temp/manual 586% tla tree-version

        There's no visual cue, but the directory is handled by arch.
