No.  It is the corresponding aliases: "delete", "move", and "add" that should
be dropped, not "delete-id", "move-id", and "add-id", because the former have
been shown to confuse people; the *-id forms are more explicit and thus
easier to explain (normally people will probably use "mv" and "rm" anyway).

archive-mirror is one of the most often used and important tla commands.

star-merge is one of the most often used and important tla commands.
