Well, for one thing, you might know just what you're doing,
and tla is eminently flexible in that account, it lets you
shoot yourself in the foot --IF you don't know what you're

I've read somewhere on this group that tla is probably meant
to be as a back-end for other UI tools, which might be a bit
more stringent at applying certain rules; maybe someone else
can be more thorough than me on this issue.

Me, I find tla's "do what you want, it's you're life" attitude
refreshing, I absolutely hate when a tool starts applying
artificial restrictions and treating me (it's user) as an
ignoramus; we all start as such, but we learn, and having a
restrictive tool takes away the delight of learning, because
then your tools don't fit quite as nicely as before, so,
IMO, tla "does the right thing".
