I rather like this idea. Both the "recursive" and "untagged-source"
could be used to good effect in the other .arch-inventory files, so they
would be just like the top-level file. The tagging method has a tla
command to set it, so it could be left in {arch}/=tagging-method. Unless
we even want to set the tagging-method per-directory, but perhaps that's

If not for having to support the legacy =tagging-method, this might even
remove a little inventory code.
