Sorry, I really am a newbie in some ways - is that "nope, there's no
reason you must unnecessarily mirror, just symlink", or "nope, you can't
just symlink, these .listing files are not created automatically"?

I'm guessing the former, since this looks very promising (along with
"tla archive-fixup -H":

The bit I guess I don't understand is the echo line.
It kind of looks like a joke, but I can't tell.

Do I have to run archive-fixup after every commit (if I want that new
changeset to appear to those viewing the .listing in my public_html
symlinked archive)?
