Yes, me too, when I have a single mirror of a given archive. 
Otherwise, I almost always do a 'tla archives' before an explicit 
'tla archive-mirror' to cross-check with the actual locations.  

For a moment, I was thinking that an archive name was something more 
abstract than an archive location: an archive name maps to many 
locations, one containing the original archive, the others 
containing (possibly partial) mirrors while an archive location 
always maps to a unique archive name.

Associated with each location, we could even have a preference value 
that tla would use to try locations in order when we refer to an 
archive by its name for actions operating at the logical archive 

Thus, I was thinking that 'make-archive' and 'archive-mirror' work 
at the location level rather than at the more abstract logical 
archive level.
