Created as bug 188

The --no-pristine flag only works when doing "get --link". Otherwise, a pristine will always be produced if the revision didn't come from a library.

to demonstrate:
$tla library-remove address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3--patch-27
$tla get --no-pristine address@hidden/tla--devo--1.3--patch-27

This bug has existed since tla--devo--1.1--patch-287 at least. The code goes:

         case opt_no_pristine:
             no_pristine = 1;
     if (hardlinks)
         safe_mkdir (tmp_dir, 0777);
no_pristine = arch_build_revision ((silent ? -1 : 1), tmp_dir, arch, archive, revision, cache_dir);

I have a fix in my local tree, which I can submit. But since this option has been broken since at least December, it may be cruft that's no longer needed.
