Yes, I can see that.  But when merging between only two archives, after
the first couple, the patch logs just talk about adding patch logs for
patches we already have.

I've ended up parsing the output of 'tla changes' to see that the
changes involve more than patch logs, and committing if so, or undoing
if not.  Works for me.
