a list of which files correspond.

But you still need the external tool to know
- how to traverse the trees,

The same way as find does.

- where to put the result of the merge of each file

In TREE/$filename

- how to report errors

That's not tla-specific, it's tool specific. In some cases, it will pop up a GTK dialog box, in other cases, it will output to the console, etc.

- how to tell tla that the merge added

File is present that didn't used to be


File is absent that used to be present

moved some files

Not detected, not necessary to detect.
