So just cancel what I tried with the versionfix-1 (was a proof of
concept anyways), i will undo that, people have to use --unescaped (or
--escaped if we reverse the logic) and we all will be happy, except for
the people who complained about the need of adding --unescaped to 'tla
tree-lint -t'.

btw: the example from Pierce T.Wetter III with the scary solutions
should simply work with my very first version:

tla tree-lint -t --unescaped | while read line; do tla add "$line"; done

as long the filenames by itself don't contain any characters which
confuse the shell.
