tla add takes an option to specify the id, so you can figure out the id of
existing files, and explicity use the same id (I've done this when I know I
later want to merge two pre-existing source-bases).

One interesting possibility might be have an option to tla-update-ids that
maintained a "new file database" of ids, which would be checked before
generating a random id to see if a file had recently been added with the
same path-name [presumably in another branch], and if so, use its id instead.

I'd rather be consing.
