If you feel you're gonna be busy for 3 months with this; I'd like to
see tla itself get the finishing touches first..

You can't build on a leaky foundation...
Many error messages are not readble for end users, how is itla gonny
handle them?
The fact that ',,' dirs are left in my tree after a fatal is also quite
telling on error handling.

Return codes are not entirely logical, I get '2' when everything went
just fine..
I get '1' most of the time, when 0 would be unix default.

OTOH. I'm probably the last one that should tell you what to spent
your time on, but you asked for our opinions. :-)

ps. 3 months is pretty darn long; my guess would be 1-2 weeks..
