Summary:  auto-extend commands

Original Submission:  When I type 
        tla file-diff
I get an error, since I missed the 's' at the end.
In many gnu tools there is a nice feature which walks over all commands and 
tries to find out which command was actually meant.

The algoritm (in cvs, gpg and others) looks like it string matches all commands 
always beginning at the first char, and when exactly one command matching is 
found, it is assumed to be the one.
In the extreme case when only one command starts with the letter 'x' then the 
command can be 200 chars long, but you only have to type the x to get a match.

This would really make tla easier to use.
