The bug is that users unintentially do a "tla add .arch-ids/*". Though its
technically their fault, its happened to me enough times that I think we
should fix it. 

If you're looking at a really short timeframe between freeze and 1.1
official it might be better if you or Andrew address this one. Though I
think the answer is probably in invent.c, I'm nervous that if I "fix"
invent.c so that intentory and tree-lint work the way that Andrew and I
want, I could cause an bug in unrelated code.

Ok. I'll try and get it done this weekend.

I'm comfortable on 1.1.0 going out without a library-browse. However, I
think we should have it in an official release within the next three
months -- whether that's 1.2 or a 1.1.x.
