the approach I use (that doesn't require a bleeding edge tla build) is
to add the directory itself (so the full tree structure is represented),
cd into the directory, and then use:

    tla explicit-default --dont-care set

this way, Arch knows about the directory itself and the proper tree
structure is represented, but any "scratch files" or other dynamic
content will be ignored.
