I don't think this adds much value to 'tla' as the 100th-and-something
sub-command. It does nothing tla-specific. It sounds like either some
other 'tla' command should be chmod'ing and touch'ing files
automatically, or you could use a shell alias for 'chmod-n-touch'.

It does seem like a reasonable idea for 'chmod' to 'touch' a file if you
want it to, so perhaps patching chmod with "--touch" flag could even
make sense.
