Usually I just have:
    wd/                 -- working directory
      wd/foo            -- source tree for Foo 3.14, directory where foo
                           is built

While most of my stuff is autotooled, I don't always use out-of-tree
builds (on some source trees, that's impossible without solving some
very difficult issues I'd rather not tackle right now) on them, and some
source trees aren't autotooled at all.

None. The fact tla forces (not even suggests -- per default, forces) me
to do this annoys me slightly. I'm sure it will eventually train me into
better habits, but I don't think this is tla's place, personally. I just
find it akin to having tla sleep and lock the screen for 3min every 45
and tell me to take a break so my RSI doesn't get worse.
