Thanks for that valuable input.
We will improve the installation procedure.

A simplified installation (the one that I use) is as follows:

* Download xtla
  tla register-archive
  tla get -A address@hidden xtla--main--0.1 xtla
* Put the following in your .emacs
  (add-to-list 'load-path "path/to/xtla/lisp")
  (require 'xtla)

That's it,
