I am aware of the problem. Once you (testers) install tla (GNU Arch)
package, it will likely be all PASSes. :) Of course I may make tests
silently pass without tla installed, but then this perl library is
useless on such systems, so it is hard to decide what is better.

The reason to remove this package may be that nearly 100% or so users
don't use GNU Arch. But other than this it should be a fully
functional library. (At least I use it almost daily.)
