That's totally orthogonal, in my mind.  I can only assume, though, that
Colin has thought of a way to give the name of the directory in some
programmatical way for these wrapper programs to use.

I'd say the neatest way to do it is with a query subcommand to tla that
would return the value of the key one is interested in, i.e.:

  tla query magic-directory-name

I'm still not seeing why yourself and Miles are so defensive of the name
'{arch}' appearing in my working copies.
