GE TQL tandem breakers?

I'm doing a house with a GE panel. The breakers are type TQL. According to the chart in the panel, it accepts tandem breakers on the bottom two slots on both sides. I need to install two tandems to free up room for two AFCIs that I need for the two new circuits to a bedroom addition.

HD only carries THQL, and THQP breakers in GE, and no GE AFCIs. There are a couple real electrical supply houses in town that stock GE, so does anyone know off the top of their GE heads what breakers I need or if they are available? This is a pretty old panel. I'm still searching, too, but thought I'd ask.

Okay, so far I've learned that the tandems are type TR, such as a TR2020 and a TR1515 for the tandems that I would need. I've even found a source, too. But noone knows anything about AFCI's for this panel yet. Anyone? Would it be common that you guys need to install a subpanel for this reason?

So, if anyone finds this thread on a search later. The type TR breakers are out there, but search thoroughly. I received quotes back with prices from $27 (reconditioned, warranty)through $100 each!!

And I have confirmed that the modern THQL fits the TQL panel as well for fullsize breakers.
