It is actually hard to be more confusing than "--" in tla commands.

For commands working with individual tree files the syntax may be simply:

  tla undo [options] [files]
  tla commit [options] [files]
  tla changes [options] [files]
  tla inventory [options] [dirs]

where "-r revision" and "-v version" are options. Using non-tree revision
or version is rare in these commands. This is also the cvs/svn syntax.

If you worry about consistency with other commands, see file-diff and
file-find as counter examples (they would use "-r revision" too).
