The locations would would be passed explicitly, e.g.

 tla archive-mirror http://... sftp://....

archive-mirror would just have verify that the destination is 
actually a mirror of the source archive (the source location can be 
a mirror as well).

I have not checked the code but I guess it could be called with 
'source location' and 'destination location', fetch the archive 
names from these locations and ensure they match.

I agree, just that I wonder whether or not any work done before at 
all would be lost.
