A significant reason why it took me a while to begin understanding the
actual meaning of those things is that I couldn't se any reason why Tla
would ever copy trees or remove files it didn't create.

Now, admittedly, I still don't see any reason for it either so I treat
precious/junk/backup as completely equivalent.  But at least I now know that
copying only happens if I use the --dest flag (which I never use) and that
deleting never happens either and is only meant for "in case some day
someone decides to use `tla inventory | xargs rm' instead of just 'rm' for
the `clean' target".
