Several aspects of the current tla codebase are questionable, e.g:
  - the use of hackerlib instead of libc because Tom considers libc as
  - the option handling is far from well factored, per design decision
  - no abbreviations are allowed, per design decision
  - the use of a low-level language like C instead of higher level
    languages allowing much faster experiments
  - the use of pika-escaped filenames in tla output

I don't say those design choices are bad, only that they are
questionable -- people may want to redesign some of those aspects
because it better fits what they or their user expect.
