Two questions:

 (1) The --unescaped option _does_ still exist, right?

 (2) What happens if you want to just hand an unescaped command-line argument
     to one of the commands you've changed to interpret escaping?

     [_Most_ command-line argument are probably from unescaped sources (e.g.,
     the user, scripts, etc.), so clearly it's necessary to have some way of
     passing unescaped arguments, and it would be a real lose if one had to
     use `tla escapify ...` on _every_ filename argument to a tla command!]

Saa, shall we dance?  (from a dance-class advertisement)
