Explicit ids for files are of the form ./.arch-ids/$
Explicit ids for directories are of the form ./$filename/.arch-ids/=id

When there's a directory $filename and an explicit id ./.arch-ids/$, tree-lint provides no warning of any kind. I think this is a bug-- deleting a file should require the corresponding .id to be deleted in all cases.

I got into this situation because I had a directory named foo.version and a symlink foo -> foo.version. I deleted the symlink and renamed the directory to foo.
