They don't need to use different tla versions, but only different
arch-meta-data dir names.
I admit it might not be very common, but I'd expect tla to work smoothly
on a wd that another user checked out. I probably won't commit, but at
least changes, ... should work.

Please don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a bad idea to use .arch as
meta-data-dir, but I think it's problematic to do it now. I'd like to
see it together with all the other incompatible changes that would be
nice to have in tla, ie. archive format changes.
