Isn't this what "aba branch-this" does? Here is a list of steps I see.

tla tag -S `aba_tree_revision` $1
aba sync-tree $1--base-0
aba set-tree-version $1

Now, it uses a sync-tree, instead of join-branch, and it doesn't do the
undo-redo stuff.

But I know that if I'm in a directory of someone else's code, and I type
aba branch-this project--dev--0.7

It will create the category in my default archive, and sync up to it.
And I'm pretty sure it doesn't care about local changes.

There are some assumptions in branch-this that the supplied branch
doesn't exist (it explicitly sync's to base-0), but to me that seems
preferable to tagging into a branch that development work has already
been done on. (The whole don't tag and commit to the same branch.)

This is a very useful command that lets you take someones working tree,
and branch it into a local archive.
