You probably won't notice them regardless, because you should rarely
have to edit files which arch creates using these characters.

The sole exception is the file created by `tla make-log' -- although
even that is not exactly a big deal (e.g. vim `tla make-log` works
fine).  I wouldn't mind (though maybe Tom would) picking some other name
for that file, and explicitly including it in {arch}/=tagging-method as
a `backup' file.

My question exactly; why are you?

Next to fried food, the South has suffered most from oratory.
