What do you want  it to do, besides just:

  tla get REV PROJ-VER
  tar czf PROJ-VER.tar.gz PROJ-VER
  rm -rf PROJ-VER


I think often stuff like this has various details that vary from project to
project, for instance, mapping from the arch version number to the `real'
version number, and generating various ancillary files for the release
(autoconf, etc).

Given that just doing it manually is actually pretty simple,
a standard script may not be all that useful.

What do people think?
