This is a replay of many previous discussions.  "branch" is probably not
entirely suitable either, because the usage _can_ conform to what people
think of as a branch, but it can also be used in other ways, as in
creating a "tag version."  That's a lot more like a CVS tag, again.

I find myself telling people to think of a tag as a symbolic link.  What
do people think of:

tla link

That seems to fit intuitively to all use cases, to me.
