I think you're looking for tla file-find (or library-find, I'm not
entirely sure what's the difference between them, except that file-find
has a default revision, and library-find does not).
These give you a location of the file in one of the libraries/pristine
trees/whatever, which you can copy wherever you want, or slurp it into
