"arch"?  As in Tom Lord's arch?  *Shudder*

Maybe we should see if bitkeeper will donate some code to us.  After all they
use cygwin for some of their stuff.  Seems only fair.

Then we get reasonable people with reasonable support.

Perhaps even better, we could then have incessant discussions about the
fact that bitkeeper isn't free and we could cast aspersions on Larry
McVoy's character (inside joke for anyone who reads linux-kernel).
