I think you may have misunderstood both tagline and explicit.  Both
allow tracking of renamed files and things.  The advantage of tagline
is that (once you've added the tag) just renaming the file will work.
With explicit, you need to use "tla move".  But both will work fine.

The tagline tagging method permits the use of explicit.  If you have a
file which doesn't have a tagline, you can use "tla add" on it, and
that'll create an explicit tag (a file in .arch_ids), and then "tla
move" and things will work.
