the choice of = in other files, such as =RELEASE-ID is based on the sort
order in emacs, yes. But for files in discussion: those in {arch}, it's
a namespace issue.

I don't see a =INSTALL in my tla managed trees.. where do you? Don't
conflate Tom's preferences with the design choices under {arch}.
Changing the {arch} structure should be for significant wins, and IMO
this isn't one.

tla add-inventory-pattern precious "\..*\.swp"
tla delete-inventory-pattern precious "\..*\.swp"
tla show-inventory pattern precious ...
