    don't know why we need .ali files in TL. Perhaps we can strip that.

If I was starting now, I would not add .ali files, but it seems harmless
to keep them, and then users' old vtex installations will keep working.
Maybe the set of such users is empty, I dunno.

Also, it would be a little work to change the updating mechanism to
ignore them.  Doesn't seem like a priority.
