Ok. I can give you spork (I'll use tla diverge). But now you owe me a
favor. Some day, you'll have to do something for me that may seem...

I was hoping to use it for the following: 

  tla get address@hidden/tla--devo tlt && cd tlt
  <hack hack hack>
  [vi `tla make-log`]
  tla --spork [qualified version] [-L "Log message"]
     which performs:
     1. tla undo
     2. tla tag -S address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3
     3. tla join-branch  address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3
     4. tla set-tree-version address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3
     5. tla redo
     6. tla commit

I'd hate to give up the word for something that could really be used
today for something else that might happen in six months.
