I don't think it's right to rename it -- whether it's good or bad seems
more a matter of personal taste than anything else -- so at best, I
think tla might support both {arch} and .arch, and allow project
maintainers to use whichever they prefer.  Note that it's basically
fixed for each project (i.e., it can't be a _user_ preference), because
changesets include explicitly named references to files underneath that

`Cars give people wonderful freedom and increase their opportunities.
 But they also destroy the environment, to an extent so drastic that
 they kill all social life' (from _A Pattern Language_)
