How about adding  an equivalent of GNU find's  -print0 to tla commands
outputing filenames  ? (This  separates filenames by  '\0' characters,
which are not allowed in filenames).

Like you can do 

find . -print0 | xargs -0 ls

you could do

tla tree-lint --print0 | xargs -0 tla delete

This  seems  to  be  the  simplest  solution.  (Ah,  it  requires  GNU
xargs :-( ...)

Note that

tla tree-lint | tr '\n' '\0' | xargs -0 tla delete

should  work already  if you  have no  carriage returns  in filenames.
(Which is anyway not recommended !!)
