It's still in Debian.

I know, but AFAIK "it just works" and has *very* few dependencies, so
it never needed new releases to adapt to new versions of its dependencies.

In any case it's not terribly important to do tests, I was suggesting
doing it if you want to figure out when things broke, assuming
installing tla was easy (which it is under Debian, even on armhf).
