I don't think so.  It _had_ some code that generated (spurious)
aliasing-related warnings from GCC that has been fixed in
tla--devo--1.1.    (There are still some other GCC-warnings-on-64bit
machines to go -- the largest source being in libneon.)

while I was in the middle of these changes so I'm not going to merge
it directly but will be using it for comparison purposes once I'm
