Thanks! That clarifies most of th things I wanted to know.

Well, adding an option to use replay instead of update is rather
trivial, methinks... :)

Ie, tla update-config would use update, tla update-config --replay would
use replay... Or I might add replay-config too... but that is either lot
of code duplication (I already copy&wasted too much), or needs some care
to implement nicely.

IOW, not for tonight :)
