You may have noticed this, but filelist for farce-002 takes in a
second argument for the output name.  So, the above statement doesn't
apply anymore.  So, you can now call

filelist /some/temp/dir/iter1 /cmp/dir/filelist-iter1

I should let you know that filelist will also does pruning of unwanted
directories, so you can copy the whole root directory and then let
filelist pick the files it wants to compare.  I prefer to do the
copying and directory pruning in do_ica_files.  Look at the bottom of
filelist to see how Ken does the pruning.
