+1 for precious
I think precious is better, because the random untagged stuff I have
does tend to be precious. I clean backups fairly regularly (and Emacs
doesn't even make backups if it knows the directory is VC'ed). I use
other mechanisms than "tla inventory | xargs rm" to do the cleaning,
but if I did use tla inventory, I think I'd prefer that it not
classify interesting files as "backup".
