tla make-archive -H could perhaps use such a warning
- tla is self documenting after all...

The reason I did this though, was that I have been trying for
about a day now to make a shared revlib, and kept getting
little things wrong - like permissions, "touch" for perms,
umasks and whatnot.

So I'm now in the habit of blowing stuff away - like my revlib,
and anything else that dares step in my path of tla learning! :)

I created a new archive dir, to match the naming convention I'd
finally decided on (~/arch/) since I decided, after having spent
gruelling hours getting my address@hidden tree in a state where my shared
revlib should actually work, for my address@hidden user to TAG off of
STABLE, in a new c--b--version (0.1 -> 0.2).
