In this case I think deviating from CVS is probably better. CVS

category to a new archive is much less intuitive.

Probably all true.  That suggests removing "tla tag", and replacing it
with "tla branch".

I think this makes sense. Conceptually, it was a small hurdle to cross to understand that ``tla tag'' would give me the ability to pull the current state of a project in someone else's archive into my own and let me start editing.

Perhaps we should add a ``label'' concept and just get rid of ``tag'' altogether.
