Summary:  tag command can embed bogus archive names in archives

Original Submission:  The following user error is not detected:

% tla make-archive address@hidden /archive


% tla register-archive address@hidden /archive

% tla tag address@hidden/cat--branch--0 cat--branch--0

which will result in the creation of, at the very least, CONTINUATION files 
that contain the name "address@hidden" which is not consistent with 

When tla accesses an archive, it should either check for consistency between 
the archive's =meta-info/name and the name used to access the archive, or 
override the name through which the access occurred and use =meta-info/name in 
any resulting write operations.
